    I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. In our growing up years she was alway ready and willing to take us to the movies, to go swimming for just let us have a sleepover. These are dear memories to me and I always felt your Mom was such a wonderful southern lady.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you, Jack and the family.
