So very sorry for your loss, Angela.   You were the first one I thought of when I heard.   I enjoyed knowing your mother and being your nurse.   Take care and know you are in my thoughts

Sending sincere condolences for your loss of Karla. She and my sister Jan were good friends growing up.  I’m sure they are reminiscing together in heaven.  Gods speed...
