    Kay and Jana,
    Sorry about the loss of your Mom. I remember her from our days working together at Blue Ridge.
    She was so sweet and helpful since I was just out of High School and getting my start
    working in
    the big wide world.
    You will miss her but you have good memories.
    Blessings
