  1. Hi Melody, I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Mom 20 years ago. It\’s never easy. You may not remember me. I lived a couple of houses down from you in Hawthorne. That old gray house next to the church. We went to Ramona Elementary, kindergarten & first grade & we were best friends, then I had to move. Your Mom would always have cookies for us & we would take walks with her. Take care.
