    Judy, Joe and Family,
    Sending my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your Mom. She was a very pretty woman and I definitely see a resemblance between you two. She lived a long life and you were lucky to have her with you all these years. The good memories you have of her will provide you comfort both now and through the years to come.

Leave Your Condolences
