Vicki and Chris (and families),

I am so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. She was a wonderful lady full of love and compassion. I have wonderful memories camping with your family, boating, fish fries and her teaching me “Chinese Pig Latin”. I am now teaching it to my grandkids and they think it is so funny.

Wanted to let you know that I am thinking about all of you and sending lots of prayers and hugs.
