    I’m trying to wrap this sad news around my head . I’m so sorry for your loss of your Mom Nancy. She was certainly a kind, caring person. Always lending a hand when needed. She was a spitfire, for sure, but that’s why she was so loved. So glad I have many fond, fun memories of her. I have the pineapple doiley on my table that she crocheted. RIP Nancy & give our Hunky , your partner in crime, a big hug. 🌹
