I was saddened to hear of the passing of your mom. She was an amazing woman with a heart of gold and an independence that I truly admire. I will treasure the memories I have working with her at RCS Cartage. I loved it when I would come in to work and she had talked with you the night before. She would tell me about your overseas adventures, traveling here, there, and everywhere. I think I lived a bit vicariously hearing those stories, wishing that I had traveled in my younger years. She was so excited when she was able to join you on your travels. She was very proud of you and your accomplishes. Although we lost touch when she moved to Canmore, I thought about your mom many times. She had given me an ornament of an angel one year for Christmas and every year when I put her on the tree I would think of Shelley.
Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
