    Andrea and Chad,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a great friend for many years. We had so much fun together and we always had something stupid to laugh about. I’m thankful that she is no longer suffering- but she gave it one hell of a fight. Rest in peace my friend – until we meet again.
