    Joyce, I am so sorry to hear that your mom passed away. It has been twelve years since my mom passed away and there isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about her and miss her. I bet our mom’s were happy to see each other again. My thoughts and prayers will be with you as you go through this difficult time. Sincerely, Carlene Ainge Beckstrand
