Thank you all for your words, gifts of flowers and food, and showing up to celebrate my Mothers amazing life. It meant so much to have you all there with us...sharing your stories and laughs and bringing some sunshine to the day. It helped to ease the pain of losing the most wonderful person I have ever known and was lucky enough to call Mom. To know she has touched you all in some way was a sincere warmth to all of us.
