Scott, Mark and Lance
So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I grew up next to you on Pine St. in St. Louis. I also found out she was the nurse who helped deliver me. I waited on her in the photo department at Walgreens last summer and had quite a chat with her about the old times. She reminded me your dad bought hogs from us, too.
May God keep you in his loving arms and give you comfort in your time of loss.
