Sherrie & Howard, I was so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom. During my childhood, I remember a sweet lady, always wearing a smile. I am thankful that you had your mother for such a long time, but there is never a good time for loss. Please know that you will be in my prayers for comfort. With love, Margaret
