Jaime, I have many memories of your mom over the years. I remember trouble I got into and going to your mom for help as I knew she wouldn't judge me too harshly. I am very sad to hear of her passing and I just want you to know she touched many lives over the years. Including defending my poor choices one night to my parents.
