I just wanted to take a moment to explain my long absence from this site and more importantly, take a moment to thank my Mom for working and trying so hard to be the best Mom she could be. All my successes and achievements, who I am, I owe to my parents. I love and miss my Mom very much. Patricia Anne Varney (O’brien) passed away July 5th due to an extremely fast growing cancerous brain tumor. She would have been 66 if she had lived two more days. We were all there to watch and help her go. Take a moment to think about your parents, and who they were and who they are now and how they impact your life. Give ’em a call.
