You don't know me, but I share your name, and my husband's name is Michael. Just a coincidence, really, but I still wanted to send my condolences.

Your mother looked like a very lovely woman, and I am sorry for your loss. She must have been very special to look so vibrant into her nineties.

Teri Helms
