So sorry for your loss, Lila, your Mom was such a sweet lady. She and Rophie were good friends of my Mom and Dad and I have some fond memories of them from childhood. Your Mom used to pay me a quarter to paint her nails. I think I got more on her fingers than her nails, but she made me feel special. She has lots of family and friends in Heaven to rejoice her homecoming. May God comfort you with lots of precious memories of her kindness, love and sweet smiles.

Love and prayers,
