Sandy, I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I know she was a big
part of your life. Please pass my condolences on to the rest of your family. Here is a little verse that I often repeat to myself when needed. I think you will like it. "Lord, help me to remember that there is nothing that can happen to me today, that you and I together can't handle." I'm sure Tommy is visiting wiht your Mom right now. Take care and if you need anything, please call me.
