    Really sad time for me.

    My mom who was an absolute gem of a person, that many on this board had met over the years, passed away on Sunday. She had lingering issues that inhibited her normal course of life for a little over 20 years. All but about 2.5 of those years, I helped and took care of her. She spent 84 years in this world and now she can tear it up again with her brother that she dearly loved. A wonderful and tough lady that was an advocate for the people she worked with. I'll sure miss that Cheshire cat grin she gave me and the sarcasm she bestowed on me.

    If I have something that anybody has paid for, I'm getting back out to work on things now.

    Many thanks

    Rob

          Sorry for the loss. What a run at 84 years old. You got to spend time with her in the golden years. If she bantered sarcasm, she sounds like someone I would have enjoyed..

          RIP,
