To Vala, Fay, and other family members,

So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I was just thinking about her this week. I have fond memories of sleepovers at your house when we were teenagers. Your Mom lived a long, good life and am glad I saw her and you when your Dad passed away. Too bad I can't see everyone again.

Stay safe and healthy.
