Debbie & Bruce so sad to read this. Your mom was so sweet and loving. She was so funny too. I enjoyed working with her in the Auditor's office. We shared so many laughs... she loved with her whole heart and will be truly missed by many mostly you. Did not know about your dad recently passing too. Sad for your family to have to say goodbye all at once. Take care.
