Abby, I am so sorry for you loss. I will be praying for you and your family in the coming days.

So sorry to hear of Ethel's passing. I never knew her very well. I went to grade school with her for the short time she was at Franklin. We did have some good times years ago at Weight Watchers. She was fun to be around. MY thoughts and prayers are with you.

So very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. We will keep you in our prayers.

So sorry to hear about your mom. Much love and prayers for your entire family.
