My mom loved to laugh and she enjoyed travelling cross country, sight-seeing by car, while visiting all the different towns and provinces. She loved beautiful sunny days as well the great outdoors and camping. Her favorite Singers were Nat King Cole and John Denver and the golden oldies of music.
However; The past 12 years, Her favorite thing was travelling throughout North America, going to "Meet and Greet" concerts and following the operatic Italian singing trio IL VOLO whom she fell head over heels in love with.
