    Ossie, My sincere condolences. I did not know your mother personally but I can see her in you. Your character and values speak volumes and are a direct reflection of your mother. You and your family are in our prayers. Your mom is one of God'd angels watching over you and your family. Remember she will always be with you in your heart.
