I made this a lot the last year or two as my mother, Caleen Mawhinney, loved tapioca. It was something she would and could eat. We will miss her, but we know she is with my dad. I know she will be missed in this community too.
We would like to thank everyone who has helped us. We appreciate all your thoughts and prayers. We thank those who helped us with her care, from driving her to church to helping her get dressed every morning. We thank all those who asked how she was doing, please know we told her you were missing her.
Hug those you love you never know when they will be gone!
