Cathy I am heartbroken at the passing of your Mom and my friend. I so enjoyed seeing her the times that I was able to visit. You and Alice and Joseph were so very lucky to have had her here with you for so long. I will miss her-I will never forget how tiny she was but what a wicked sense of humor she had and how much fun we used to have walking home after working at the school office every summer. God bless her.
