    Diana and Kipper,
    I’m so sorry to hear about your mothers death. I hope y’all are at peace with her passing. I think I would prefer to donate to the condolence fund for CP. I know they do great work there! I will not be attending services or visitation. I just try to stay away from people during the winter to keep healthy.
    My sincere condolences to Diana, however. This is always hard to take over the Holidays.
