Betty Jane and Pat: My deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother.Words can never fully ease the pain that you now feel, but know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this most difficult time. You had her a lot of years. I knew that she and my mon were the same age and went to school together, but don't think I knew that they shared the same B-Day. Now they are together again as angels above. God Bless
