    Lisa I heard about your Mom’s passing at my neighbors funeral but they got the day wrong for the wake so I missed it. So sorry. You know I lost my Mother suddenly one day when I was working at Poarch. I know how you feel and my heart goes out to you all. She did some sewing for me many years ago and was such a sweet lady. May God give you comfort and know that I care.
