Sylvia, although I was not lucky to have met your mom, after reading about her, I can see where you get your very kind heart, your talents and your work ethic. She raised a wonderful daughter who I have no doubt she was very proud of. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your sister.

So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. She always had a warm-welcoming smile, and a positive-caring personality. Always enjoyed talking with her.
I know you carry a lot of cherished memories of her. Take comfort, that you are being thought of during these difficult days.

I’m so sorry about Viki. When I moved to West Virginia, Viki was the first person to welcome me. She always shared her tomatoes, baked goods, and magazines…and always offered a wave and a smile. She knew so much about growing flowers, and was really talented with her landscaping and decorating her yard. When the weather was nice, she was always working outside…her yard was beautiful.

Viki is missed so much. I’m very sorry for your loss.
