One of the hardest days of our lives was saying goodbye to our Mom.  Our Mom passed away like she lived, completely how she wanted to do it!  On her farm, horses in the field, and her 7 month-old puppy, Phoenix, sleeping on the floor beside her.

Those who were lucky enough to know my Mom knew she was a force to be reckoned with, SMART, TOUGH, and a great business sense that helped her and my Dad live a wonderful life.  And she did it ALL WITH STYLE!

We know she's with our Dad and her loved ones that passed before her, and all of the horses, dogs, and cats, that she loved and cared for over her lifetime.  Thank You Mom for teaching us how to be the business people we are today.  And to stand our ground, get up and get it done every day and “no” doesn't mean “never”; it just means "not now", so keep trying! We love and miss you so much already!   Vjecnaja Pamjat.  Memory Eternal.
