  2. So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing Shelley. I never had the opportunity to meet her, but you sure look like her, and she sounded like she was an active lady both physically and in the community, so much like you. My thoughts are with you and your family and I’m sending a big hug and love during this difficult time. She’ll always be part of your heart and your memories. Take care of yourself. Love, Christine
