Sorry to hear of your dear Mother's passing. I remember her friendliness and interest in talking with me when I would be at the bank when young..
You were fortunate to have had a wonderful lady for a Mother, and to have enjoyed her for 60 years. We will all miss her.
My sincere sympathy to you and your family.
