    Tammy,Shawn and Alana. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult journey in your life. I can not be at the service. I have some very special memories of your mom from working with her and riding back and forth to American Greetings and our chats we would have when I would see her at Sams. I know she loved you all to the moon and back. Take care of yourselves. I love you all Jo Della ( Hathaway) Harrison
