Trina, know that your mom is resting in peace with your dad, forever and always together! You did a tremendous job that not many could looking after your mom and taking such loving care of her, even when it was so very difficult. Your mom had a great, sharp sense of humor and always a smile. I will miss her forever and a day! Sending love and prayers to you, my friend!
