Debbie: So sorry to see of your mother’s passing. I remember her from years ago when we were young and playing at your house. It’s very difficult losing our mothers. I have you in my prayers.

This little lady was an ornery one, but very sweet. She definitely will be missed. Teresa, my hat is off to you for all the time, love, consideration, and comfort you gave your mother. It's hard for me to bid 'goodbye' to a true Just Jett Series fan. Bless you Helen. I appreciated having you aboard. Love always, Robin
