Deepest sympathy to you, Kim. I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. She loved her family and her pets, and I know she passed that love on to you. I picture your Mom most with her hair styled on top of her head in a bun style. Her voice and laughter will always be remembered. May you find peace and joy in your memories of her. Rest in peace, Sharon.
