Your Mom was a very special person. You never saw her that she did not have a kind word. I always asked about you, Shawn, and she was so proud to tell me all about what you were doing now and that you stayed in close touch with her. She and I enjoyed many fun times at the Women's Club and I will miss her and her wonderful smile.
