I just wanted to say thank you from me and my family  for all of the e-mails, tweets, phone calls and phone messages from relatives, friends and readers concerning the passing of my late, great mother over the past few days.

More than one brought a tear to my eye and there were hundreds so I didn’t respond to all of them. Just know I read every one one out loud to my brothers and sister or my Dad or my wife.

You were all a big help during a tough time. And for that I will always be grateful.

Rest in Peace, Mom.
