    John and Tina,
    So sorry to see that your mom passed away! She always had a smile that you knew was hiding some funny prank or thought. Prayers for comfort and peace to your whole family. I’m sure she would have liked to see her grandchildren grown, and I’m sure she is proud of you both. You will meet her again……Hugs.
