Dear Brian, Kathy, and Sydney, I am so sorry for your loss. What a great mother and grandmother you have lost. I will always picture her weedwacking, spraying weed killer and taking a break under the shade tree on a warm summer day. She amazed me. What a hard worker even at her age. She will b missed by all. Know you are in my prayers.
