I will miss your Mom very much, and as I’m sure we all do, I have many wonderful memories of your mother, and all of us growing up together. I’m sure your dad is waiting for her with open arms, as they are together once more to share the deep love they had for one another.

Gadget, Linda, I am so sorry to find out that you lost your mother. Just reading about her life, she must have been a wonderful, loving, giving person. How lucky you were to have someone like that in your life. Know that I will keep you, your mom and the family in my prayers in the coming days. God Bless!
