Tommy - I am so very, very sorry to have missed your message of your mom's passing. I would have certainly been at her visitation and funeral had I been here. My wife and I were in Greensboro, NC visiting our grandchildren - and typically I do not check Facebook while on the road. Please forgive my absence, as you have been and continue to be so very special to me, as were you such a force in the life of my mother. Please know you and yours are in my prayers. Nat
