    Sharon, I just learned of your mom’s passing and I am so very sorry to hear this! I am glad that you had the opportunity to move back close to her and be with her on a regular basis these last years. My dad was also born in March of 1925, but unfortunately, he didn’t live to be 93…lost him at age 79. I pray that your mom was in good health, for the most part, and that you were able to make some wonderful memories these last years together and that you will always cherish the nice long life that she was blessed with! Love you,
