    John and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was such a special lady and I can't help but think of your parents every Valentine's Day because, in addition to being life long friends, they shared the same anniversary date as my parents. I will hold your family close in my thoughts and prayers as you travel this difficult road ahead.
