Nick and family, I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was a very sweet woman and friend. We sent each other Christmas cards up until she moved from her home. We would also see each other at Claudines back when she came over alot. I loved her and your dad whose was a great friend to my dad Harry McDaniel.
