    Dear  Carol 

    Janet kept me in the loop during your mom's last days. I'm so sorry for your loss.  No matter our age, losing our parents is painful and hard. She was the keeper of your childhood memories and teen aged escapades.  I'm very sorry for your loss. Janet loved her so much.  I've heard about your mom and her fabulous holiday feasts for more than a decade. Think of you❤️
