On be half of Eric and myself (Debbie); Hal, Rickie and Sam our deepest heartfelt sympathy in losing your mom and grandma she was a really great lady and on occasion when I would see her we would chat. I remember a time down at the beach she showed me her vacation trailer and she was so proud of it and I will miss her but she will always be in my heart as the nicest person I got to meet.
