Lynn, So sorry for your loss. You always talked about your mom and you were always there for her! I know she was a wonderful mother the way you always spoke about her, but you were a wonderful daughter because you were always there and always talking about her! Losing a parent is tough. Especially this time of year. She is rejoicing in heaven at such a special time with those that have gone before her. I love you Lynn. Life moves quickly and it’s memories we make with family and friends that count here on earth. Take care of yourself♥️
