Mae West (Mom, MeMe, Nemo) was very kind and always there for anyone that needed help. She never got to finish her mission, but MoM “I promise I will” Love to show off her sewing skills to anyone that wanted to learn and gambling, lol!! Her saying was, “Hey Heart, Penny for your thoughts” will last a long time. You’re now happier to be with dad. Mom, we all love you very much and miss you!
