Jane, Randy, Jill and Tom,
I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. It is so hard to watch are parents age and struggle with all that goes along with that process. I can still see your mom doing that wonderful "Farmer Wave" every time you meet her on the road. Lots of good memories of our neighbors on that road - now those homes stand empty or new families occupy them. Where did those years go! God's blessing to each of you as you travel this new road ahead of you. Know that you mom is in a better place and once again smiling upon each of you with your dad by her side.
