    I am so sorry to hear this sad news about your mom; she was such a dear, dear friend whom I will always have the fondest of memories. She was an independent lady who knew who she was, what she wanted, and how to achieve that end. She was all this and so much more with a kind heart and gentle, caring compassion for others. Even as we worked together at the Monaghan Plant, I learned so much from our friendship; we were not co-workers (even though I was her supervisor), but teammates on the same journey. I know she will be missed, but she will forever remain in our hearts because of the life she lived.

    May God provide his everlasting love, strength, and mercies to you and your family.
