Karen and Family, So sorry to read about the passing of your wonderful mother. She was such a sweetheart and I will never forget my days of bowling with her on the Ross' team, we had so much fun. Those days were truly some of the best! So sad that I did not know she was ill so I could have visited with her. Peace and Prayers to all of you.
