I am truly sorry for your loss. I was planning on attending the service, but my son Ryan had surgery in Allentown and I am going to pick him up this morning. May the wonderful memories of your fun, loving, caring Mother and grandmother fill the empty space her passing has left. God Bless your wonderful family with peace and comfort.
