Janice....so sorry for your loss. I have lots of great memories of being at your house and of your mom from childhood. My absolute favorite was playing on the merry-go-round you had in your backyard.
I'm hoping that all of the wonderful memories of your mom will lessen the grief and bring you peace..
Just remember....she is still here with you in spirit.,,,You can talk to her anytime.
God bless you, my friend....Mary Reynolds
