I am so sorry to read about your Mom's passing in the Shopper. She will always hold a very special place in my heart. I spent some time with her just before covid hit and we were no longer able to walk from the Oaks to her building. We had a few laughs and hugs that day. I will always cherish the warm smiles and giggles we shared. She was one in a million for sure. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
