Gina...I am so very sorry for the loss of your mom.

Reading about your mom brings the movie Secondhand Lions to mind and a comment made in that movie.

Your mom truly lived!

And now she will live on in your memories and through each and every one of you.

She had to have been a wonderful woman! Just take a look in the mirror at her daughter! You are an awesome lady!
