Amy, I am so sorry to read that your Mom has passed away. Such a lovely lady. I would only let Sunny help me in the shoe dept at Saks- and I loved to would admire her beautiful Sunny pin that she always wore. I know all too well how difficult it is to lose a Mom but hold onto your wonderful memories as she will always be with you. Sending you our heartfelt condolences.
