Julie, I am so very deeply sorry for your loss. Your mother was such a sweet, sweet soul. From the first time I met her until the end, she treated me like she had known me forever. I loved chit-chatting with her and cutting up. We had some good laughs (sometimes at you :)). She truly will be missed, but I'm glad she's not in pain anymore. Love you, mean it! Heather
