Deb, Cheryl, Craig and Cyd, I was so sad when I heard of your mom passing. I was able to spend time chatting with her at my mom's house after my mom's funeral. It was so nice to see her. She was a good friend to my mom. I remember the afternoons by the pool with Justin and her Tuesday night dinners at my moms. I know you are all hurting now; it's so difficult to say goodbye to a loved one. I wish you peace in these days ahead.
