  1. Jane, I offer my sympathy at the passing of your Mom, my aunt and Godmother. She was such an awesome lady. We share so many memories over all the years. I’m glad i got to talk to her on the phone a couple of times with the distance in miles. It was always a joy to get her letters as well. I looked at airfare and am sorry I won’t be able to make the trip for the memorial service, but know that you will all be in my thoughts and prayers. I will connect on my next trip back in May. All my love, Sheri
