Your mom was such a sweet lady! She was always smiling and had special things for us to do when I'd come over to play. Debra, Charles and family, my heart goes out to you for your loss, but she is flying with the angels now and she would want you to be happy on earth knowing we will one day join her.
God bless you all,
Linda Jones Chew-Graetz
