Your mother was truly a lovely lady! Whenever I would visit her at Thornton Manor, she always greeted me with warm smiles and such an excitement, much as my own mother used to. We always spent a lot of time visiting. I will remember her as having a kind heart, a gentle spirit, and twinkling eyes. Heaven holds a special place for her! Many your many memories comfort you and help to lessen your loss!
