    So sorry to hear of your mom passing. She was such a nice lady. I met her when she lived on Minnasota St. She was also working when I had my son, when I woke up she had made a little pair of booties for him and also when I had my daughter,I never forgot that and I often think of her and never know where she lived. I know she's in heaven taking care of others. Shirley
