Dear family, so very sorry to hear about you father. I sent a message when your mother passed but for whatever reason it didn't show up. I lived in the apartments for a while. Your mother was so good to me. I enjoyed them both. Prayers for peace. It is so hard to be without them....but only for a while. God bless each of you.
