Oh Jo Ann. I am so sorry to read this. Mum passed when she was 100 1/2 and I was 60. Makes no difference how old we are or they are, it is very difficult to lose your Mom. I remember going over to your house in the mornings to catch the school bus. Always thought Barb was pretty cool. My condolences to you and the extended family.
