Dear Amy and Donna, I’m so sorry to hear that your mom has passed. We know she’s gone to an amazing place, reunited with family that has gone before her yet I know the loss and grief is still very intense right now for you two, the rest of the family and all of us that loved her! Love and prayers that you both feel God’s comfort and peace going forward. I have so many memories of her kindness and interest in all we were doing as kids, awesome breakfasts after a sleepover and she was rarely without a smile! Though we haven’t seen her in a few years, Maggie and Patrick (24&20) also remember her kindness and attention. Love to you two and the rest of the family!

I have so many memories growing up with the Card gang! Up north, fairs etc. One of the more recent memories I have was taking your mom and my parents to Lewiston. You mom talked all the way up. :) HUGS!
