Always enjoyed seeing her riding her awesome bike around town. She made the BEST treats too. Such a wonderful lady. Thoughts and prayers to your family
This is her daughter Chris, the pic is a pic of her first selfie. She and I had fun that day, now I wished I had done more.
Sorry to hear about your mom Kevin. My thoughts and prayers are with you - Jennifer
