Hugs to all of you. So many memories of your Mom/wife. Our girls still have a few outfits that your Mom made for dolls. Such talent. Gingerbread houses! Fun days playing in the yard. Jim remembers just hanging out with Mrs. Diller! What a baker, what a smile and love to go with it. We are praying you will remember all the good times. Not the end times. Just know she loved you all very much. One special memory for me was when my Mom died. I had just come back from the hospital. She was waiting with a hug and words of love. Spoken to me by your Mom/wife. Look after each other. Know that we are sending a virtual hug and prayers of blessing. With love Jim and Barb
