    Paul, I am so sorry for your loss.She was a very special lady and had a heart of gold.She was a very good friend to me and I thought of her as a friend instead of a resident in a nursing home. She loved you so much and was so proud of you. If there is anything you need let me know. With deepest sympathy, Valerie Pointer

    So sorry for your loss Paul, I loved your mom she was a good friend to me, we kind of lost touch over the last several years and I regret that so much I did get to see her and visit with her about 6 mnths ago which was so nice. I have so many fond memories of her not just as an adult but as a child , she was a special person, but I know I will see her again, until then she will be missed.
