Joan, Charlie, Judy and Diana, So sorry to hear about the loss of your mom. I knew your Mom through wallpaper assistance @ Altep. She was a gracious and beautiful woman. You all probably already know this, but your Mom always spoke so highly of each of you, she was very proud. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
