    So sorry to learn about your mother passing. I have a story to share. When we were in high school you asked if could borrow the family car so we could go bowling. You got the OK, but first we had to go to the bank to pay her mortgage!!! Wonderful memories bring peace in times of sorrow. May joyful memories bring peace to you and your family.
