    Your mother was so devoted to her boys...There was nothing more special to her than the days and years she was with you. Thank you for allowing me to be a part in her service. She was such a good friend.2f2p

    Gary, Alex,Chris, (and Ashley) Hey guys, I am sorry to learn of your mom's passing. I always thought you guys looked so much like your dad, but now that I have seen the picture of your mom, I may have to change my opinion. Guys, I never met Ashley, but, as a Windenhouse brother, he,too, will be in my prayers in the coming days.
