So sorry. Your mother was a second mother to me. Always cheerful and helpful. I always felt welcome, and she had a way to take all my troubles away, Make me feel safe and secure like a little boy. I felt so good after talking to her. I will miss her so much. She will always be remembered. Always on my mind.
