      Julie and Sue my heart broke when my mom sent me the news. Growing up your mom was like a second mom. I have such great memories of her. She was one of the kindest, caring and most genuine person that I have had the pleasure of knowing. Sending my prayers and love to you both during this difficult time. Carol you will always have a special place in my heart. Heaven has gained a beautiful Angel.
