We were so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. Mrs. Atkinson as I called her was always so sweet and very kind. I have to say she made the best minestrone soup with fresh veggies. She was a wonderful Mom! I know she will be missed by all who knew her.

Our heart & thoughts go out to you all during this sad time.
