Sorry to hear of your mother's passing and while reading this saw where your father also passed. I went to school with both of them, have fond memories of them and our days at BCS

We were friends from the moment we met over 60 years ago.
So many happy memories; lots of laughs and good times that we carry with us on our journey. Divine intervention brought us back in touch over the last couple of years and it's been good. Love, big hugs and blessings always, dear
