I am so very sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. I ran into your Mother several years ago in Hicksville, Ohio at the Opera House. I hadn't seen her since the 1970's. Your Mother endured so many losses, yet she showed such compassion. What a lovely Woman. Memories last forever...You had a Wonderful Family! (Bobby was in my class and I never forgot him.)
