    Becky and Frank, I am so sorry for your loss. We loved your mom and will miss her very much. She was a true friend to Mike and I. We have so many special memories of your mom and I so enjoyed every phone conversation we had after she moved. May God be with you and your family, may all your wonderful memories help you through the days ahead.
