I’m glad I was able to attend your Mother’s service today. I found the stories about both of your parents heart warming. They reminded me of similar instancesI heard from my parents . What was said about your Mom sure paralleled a lot of my thoughts , and what I feel my Mother stood for. You should be very proud. Pat
