Chris, Steve, Cindy and Patti, I am so sorry for the passing of your sweet mother. I have so many wonderful memories of her as we all grew up together. She was always sweet and kind and treated us like family. I've missed her, and all of you through the years and wondered where you were and hoped all was well. I will never forget her homemade tortillas. They were amazing. I know you will miss her as I miss my mother every single day. You are all in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. Love to all of you, Shirley
