    Our sympathy to you and your family in the loss of your Mom. I had a long chat with her just before Christmas and she was always so interested in how farming was going. After our son Michael was diagnosed with cancer and after he passed she made calls to see how our family was doing……such a sweet and caring person💖. May all your good memories comfort you 💖
