My heartfelt condolences to Gwen, Eric, Marty and Cole on the loss of your Mom. Rae's attitude during her lengthy illness was always so positive as she pushed through the treatment, and the pain. Her favorite greeting was "I'm doing okay for an old Lady". The precious memories of spending time with Rae will forever remain in my heart!
