    Holly, I read your mom's obituary online because she seemed very familiar to me... and then it all made sense as I recalled years ago at the Mega bakery, your Mom stopping in frequently and how close the two of you were; you'll be in my thoughts.

    Holly & Family,
    I am so very sorry for your loss. I will miss her. Whenever we ran into one another I was always greeted with a cheery smile and great conversation. Hold on to the happy memories that will bring a smile to your lips in the coming years. God bless and hugs, Kathy
