Jen, our prayers are with you and your family, especially with your dad. Your mom was such a blessing to so many. She is the reason that one of our daughters became an OT, continuing to spread your mom’s influence to others. We will pray for your mom and will ask her to do the same for us. Love, Ann & John Riiey
