Paul, you certainly did get a smile out of me, and I appreciate it.

Johnny, that's a lovely, 'tho unnecessary gesture. But if you insist, Mom was a lifelong avid gardener, and could make cacti grow underwater and rainforest orchids thrive in a desert. One of her favorite places of all time was our local botanical garden, so any memorial donation would best go to:

Kanapaha Botanical Gardens
4700 S.W. 58th Drive
Gainesville, FL 32608

In memory of Sebastiana Catalina Caballero, although she went by "Cathy" to everyone who knew her.

Once again, THANK YOU to all my OFC family for your support and kindness.

Serge, Really sorry for your loss. From the photo I can clearly see where you got your love of slotheads from ...

When my own mother passed away several years ago it puzzled my wife why I didn't really show any grieving for a woman I was so close to and loved so dearly. But I explained "I knew her for 48 years and today is the only bad day we ever had."

I hope your memory too is filled with wonderful rememberences of your mother and by all accounts she has left quite some impression on this world.

Kind regards, Dave

Really sorry to hear about her death but I am uplifted by your story of her life. It sounds like the world was a better place because of her and all of us should be grateful for that.

G8r, I am sorry to hear about your mother, I send my sympathy to you and your family. Writing a beautiful tribute to her as you have is good for you. It puts your mind in a place of remembering her and re-living your time with her. I can imagine the range of emotions you may have went through putting that together. When my father passed away I had was asked to do something and at first I was, "What now?" But doing it was a heart-wrenching beatutiful task that I was happy I did. Yours was a great one. Keep her memory alive and be sure your children know of her especially the little one that will need you to remind her.

Be well,
Mario

Whew, I'm overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity. This truly is the finest collection of people on the planet.

Way to go Beal, and a very special thank you for the dedication and your generosity. Johnny, you've been like a brother, and this coming January at G8rbowl-Dos I'll explain just how much that means.

Our love and blessings to you all.
