Sally, Jeff, and family,
I am sorry to hear about the passing of you mom. It is always so difficult to lose a loved one, even when the passing is expected. It does not matter how "prepared" you are. I like to think that the Stars in the Sky are windows for our family members; and they winking down at us to tell us "All is well with My Soul." So look up, and let love flood your hearts.

Wishing you Peace.
