    I am so very sorry for your loss and am here if you should need anything.

    I know that you were very lucky to have such a strong, spunky, fun-loving mother who loved you all so very much…..and she, in turn, was lucky to have three wonderful kids who blessed her each and every day with calls, McDonalds coffee, hair do’s, and just being there for her.

    God Bless to you all.
    Love, Maria
