    Hi Rita and other family members, I am so sorry for your loss. What an amazing life your mother must have had to live to be 98 years old. It is always hard to lose someone so close. You will have so many memories to cherish, and she will always be with you in spirit. I am so sorry I couldn't make it to the funeral. I am attending my cousin's funeral at the same time. Sending lots of hugs and prayers. Tonyea Mead
