    Sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom, I spent many of hours with her when I worked for Promises. And we have visited after I quit. She was a sweet heart. I have missed visiting with her and have no excuse for not making it over. Now I regret I didn’t make a better effort. She will be missed. I hope they have a lot of books in heaven. My thoughts and prayers to you all
