My thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family during this difficult time. I know how hard it is – my Mother died in March. Your Mom was a wonderful person. I have good memories of Saturday visits with my Dad to your house I remember being amazed and intrigued by the sausage plant.

Tell your Dad I am thinking about him too.
