Richard, We are heartbroken and sending you and the children our love and prayers. Mo was such an incredible person and I loved our walks and talks in the hood. She was such a bright light and always smiling. She was always so good with our girls. I’ll never forget the Christmas when she had them over to make cookies. They had so much fun with her! Sending you prayers and strength daily. Love, Brooke and Denton
