So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was a great lady. I remember her and your dad from their boating days at Lighthouse Cove! They so enjoyed getting the family out on their boat and then spending time with everyone at the dock. She had a great life and a great family. Thinking of you all and sorry we can’t be there.
