    Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your Mother. I only met her one or two times but it is easy to tell by the son she raised that she was a great Mom. I remember her working along side your Dad in the Glass shop. Be comforted by the thought that they are united again in Heaven. God Bless Her. You and your family are in my prayers. family.
