    Hi Nancy,

    So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing this summer. I remember her as someone that made me feel like family. I know how much she will be missed by all. My mom passed away in January, but Dad is still doing well and just returned from a trip to Italy this fall. Hope all is well with you and your family. Hope you had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year! I have been in north Phoenix the past 15 years and enjoying every minute! Would love to hear from you if you want. Take care of yourself!!
