My sympathy to the family on losing your Mom. I will miss her coming and joining Doreen and I and Agnes, when she was living, in "our" pew at church. She was always and kind and caring person and I am sure will be sadly missed by many many people. I won't be able to attend the funeral as it is my teaching painting class that afternoon.
