    Michael and Diane and families, So very sorry for your loss. I will remember your Mom as being the helpful one in the background, always giving of her time and love. And even though your Dad was the funny guy, I loved discovering your Mom's great sense of humor. She was so brave after your Dad's passing. I pray you will find comfort in knowing they are together again. Love, Lori and Derek Wolcott
