    Chris, I am so very sorry about your mother. I remember a long conversation with her at your house a couple of years ago. Though I did not know her well, I could see a lot of you in her. I know she will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.

    So sorry to read about your mom, Tim. Condolences to Amy, Sara and Sam as well. Many fond memories at family functions but the best day with Joane was at Tower Beach! Oh we sure laughed a lot and shared many stories that day. She will be missed.
