    I am so very sorry for your loss. She was a dear friend and I loved her too! I will miss her smiling face and great sense of humor. She really loved playing cards and going to the casino. Jan, you took such good care of your mom, she was fortunate to have you during the last few years, God will reward you for your excellent care. That empty chair will be difficult for your family, remember how much she loved all of you. God Bless All of You!
