Karen, my thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of your mother Barb. I remember working with Barb during our days together at Agway. She had a ever-present smile and was always willing to take on new assignments. Through your mother, I met you. In no time, it became quite obvious that you are your mother's daughter!
While your mother has passed, know that she will continue to be with you ... daily sharing her love, a treasured memory, her endless wisdom, and yes, ... her smile.
May your tears flow gently. May family and friends bring you comfort.
