  2. Awww I will be working at this time on Saturday. I lost my mother may 2015 at the same age so i understand what some are feeling.
    . take time for yourselves to heal, time off work, whatever you need to grieve … Its been over a year and I still think about my mom. Memories never fade but its us who can live out our lives ans maybe even some things that mom dreamed of too in memory of her. Condolences Chad and the rest of the family.
