    Hi, Bruce and Family

    Does not matter how old we get it hurts to lose a parent. Remembering the good times and sharing this memories is a real comfort. Your mom loved to laugh and would not welcome tears. The last thing my Dad told me was “Don’t cry”. I imagine May would have said the same.
