I lost my Mom February 14, 2007 and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her...

I just passed on Mom's car to my younger sister. It's a 1991 Oldsmobile with 18,000 original miles. My sister, Sue, was thrilled to acquire Mom's vehicle...nice to keep Mom's car in the family.

My condolences to you and yours, Stefania... #8086141
