Tambria and Terry,
I’m sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. She was a good friend for many years and will be missed. I was unable to attend the service but hope you know my thoughts are with you all.

Tambria, I'm so sorry, but I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet her. I enjoyed her even though our meetings were brief. May God comfort you at this difficult time and help you dwell on the wonderful memories you have stored away.
