Good morning Shelley, I was informed by Lindsey about your mother passing. I wanted to extend my condolences and sympathy. Not sure if you are aware, but my mother passed May 15th from ovarian cancer. She was diagnosed in April. They gave her 3 months, then 3 weeks. She was gone in 12 days so I am glad she didn't suffer long. I am glad to hear your mother didn't suffer long as well. Watching a loved one suffer and pass was the worst experience of my life and I am a changed individual because of it. I wanted to let you know I am here for you if you like. I understand what you are going through. Please extend my love to Jamie and Whitney. Take care, Darlene

wendy (Dora's mom)

Oh Shelley- I am so sorry. I have been so wrapped up in things here, that I just saw your email. I am so sorry!!! I never got to meet your Mom, but honey she did one great job raising you to the wonderful woman you are. I know in my heart that she is so proud of you. I could say all of those things that you have probably heard from everyone else by now. Instead, I will just say take things slow and keep in touch with me, if you want to. Again, I am so sorry. My Love to you, Derrick and the family. Wendy

Cheryl Wright
