I was so very sorry to learn of the passing of your Mom/Grandma. For so many years she was a 2nd mother to me. I will always remember her in the kitchen cooking for everyone. She loved her family so much and they were her life. All of the Tersavich family are in my thoughts and prayers.
With my deepest sympathies,
