Sandy I hurt for your loss having gone through the same thing last year. Your mother took care of your father and then you took care of your mother at home for as long as you could. I really admired you and Joe for bringing her into your home but that is how the both of you are. I am sorry I can't make it for visitation or the funeral. Believe it or not, I am in the middle of the final preparations for an annual conference and will be working Wed. evening and Thursday. God bless you during this time of healing and may he give you the strength to get through it. Dorothy
