    Peace be your mother Ann, Janis, Kara, you, along with Ann’s extended and loving family.
    Sorry I couldn’t be there for you and Mila to offer my condolences, but know I am there in spirit and thought.
    I remember reading this little poem and wanted to share it with you…

    Mom, I thought of you with love today,
    but that is nothing new.
    I thought about you yesterday,
    and days before that too.
    I think of you in silence,
    I often speak your name,
    Now all I have are memories,
    and your picture in a frame.
    Your memory is my keepsake,
    with which I’ll never part.
    God has you in his keeping,
    I have you in my heart.
