Vickie and all the family of Sandy. I was an RT in Howell and took care of your mother for a long time. I just heard of her passing on Thursday. I'm deeply sorry for your loss. Your mom had such a wonderful sense of humor and very kind heart she certainly brightened many of days. She loved her family so deeply and talked of you all often. It was a pleasure to know such a great lady and some of you. I loved her and will miss her! Kathy Bough
