    Carol and Kenny, please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of you Mother, whose spirit was one of a kind. She was the heart of “THE LUCKY 8” group and both my husband John and I were lucky to be a part of all the fun times we had together. I’m thankful for the great memories we had over the years. Please know your family is in my thoughts and prayers
