    So sorry for your loss Andrew, Kip and Gigi. Your mom was a very sweet loving person. I always appreciated her kindness and love she showed for her stepson Clifton Pittman. He loved her dearly. You have been thru so much last few years. Just remember God is there for you and I’m a phone call away. Beverly
