Robbie, Michelle and Family. I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. It is always hard to lose someone you Love so much but the Holiday Season seems to make it so much harder. I was unable to attend services last night and today and just wanted to send you a message letting you know that I am thinking of you all. My thoughts are with you all as you try to get through this extremely trying time. You have an Angel above to get you through so remember her with all the great memories that she gave you as a Mother and a Friend.
