Becky, Heidi and Ed, I am sad to hear of your mom's passing. She was always friendly and kind to me at family gatherings. We had fun discussing our our nursing experiences together. I enjoyed getting to know her when she attended my GriefShare support group after the loss of your dad and Heidi's husband also. She loved you all! The family reunion in heaven keeps expanding! Love and prayers to all of you.
