Kathy, I was so sorry to learn that your mother passed away. I remember when I went with you during a lunch hour to visit her at the church.  I do hope all of the memories you have of your mother will ease the sorrow that you are feeling. My sincere sympathy and I do hope that you and Sam are doing well. I see you are living in VA. How nice.
