My deepest condolences to you Jenn, Jolene and family. Your mother was a joy and there are so many fond childhood memories of sleep overs in your room, the back yard and who can forget nagging your mom to repeat ” shut up I’m watching Dallas” in Italian until she was fed up with us. I am so very sorry for your loss. I know without a doubt your mother was and will always be immensely proud of her girls.
