Robert and Brandi, We are so very sorry for your loss! I know how very much your Mom/Grandmother loved you both, and I know that she may not have been able to say it in the end, but I am sure she was busting with pride how you tend to her needs right up to the end! Know that she is sleeping now and one day you will all be together in a beautiful place where illness will be no more! Love you both, Charles and Amy Revilla
