You got Debster all teared up, Normster*. She read through it twice and thought it was awfully nice. She said to pass on that while regret doesn’t keep her up at night, because she knows she did her best for Mom, that this isn’t the case with everyone, so she really appreciates the sentiment. (And Jackster is also very thankful for the poetry and the comfort for his wife.)

*The rule is, first syllable of the name + “ster” so it’s Debster, Emster, Normster, etc. I didn’t make the rule, I just follow it.**
