I periodically look on this site and it just is breaking my heart to see your precious mom here. I have thought of her off and on several times and kept thinking I would stop by when in Hobbs. So sad I didnt. My heart and prayers are with you girls and I know Maggie is in heaven, she was such a wonderful wonderful woman. God Bless you both.
