I too am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I was so glad that my sister Barb and I had a nice visit with Sarah this past June when we visited in Rosetown. I was always amazed how she seemed to be busy doing so many things but always had time to enjoy a visit. Guaranteed as a visitors you always felt at a home too. Such a lovely lady!
