My deepest sympathies. I took care of her at Brookdale and was always so happy to see the twinkle in her eye and the grin she'd get when something was funny. She'll be deeply missed. Thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I was very sorry to read about your mom and one of my favorite traveling buddies. We both liked ruined castles. We also had something else in common, our maiden name was Webster. She liked to be called Lady Goforth-Spendalot and she called me Bodecea. She was really quick on a comeback. Those were the best trips I ever took and missed her a lot when she could not go anymore. Rest in peace my Lady.  "Bodecea"
