Ginny, BJ and family, my heart goes out to each one of you. Your mom was a gracious and kind person. My first contact was her handling my dog stones river delta dawn. I was fairly new not only to Danes but also the show world. She took me under arm and treated me as if she had known me forever. She wil be a loss to me and all those who knew her. She is an angel now and I am sure will be watching over each of you!
