I am so sorry about the passing of your mother. I know she was a great lady from what I have heard. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I talked to Amanda Santay yesterday and all the family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I only met her twice as I live in Colorado, but thought she was a remarkable lady.
