Susan, I just learned of Tads death on the internet, I'm very sorry for your loss and also of the loss of your mother. Seems like the older we get, the more we loose. Sure don't make it any easier tho.
My wife Kay passed away in Dec of 2018, leaving quite a gap in my life.
Please remember that GOD is still in control and HE will see you thru this too.
