Dear Julie and David, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom! I loved her so much! She was so sweet! I used to love sitting with her at Holy Rosary prayer meetings when I was young. She was close to my mom. She also used to work with my dad so I would see her when I'd pop in to see my dad. I'm praying for your family! Hugs.
