@IMW ...I know how you feel.  I miss my mother and father everyday, they were two of the most wonderful parents a child could have.  Take comfort in that your mother guides and shines her light on you. Heart

@Lindsays Grandma  These are all lovely quotes, but number 11 tugged at my heart as well, and I couldn't agree more with number 15!😊
