  1. Dear RJ, Sissy and Larry. I am still trying to process the loss of your Mother and my best friend. I know it will hit me when I need to call her and tell her the “latest” secret or boring news. She was always there to give me advice or cheer me up. I know she is having a great time in heaven and heaven is having a great time with her. Love you all. Big N
