    Sue, Jan,, & Annette - your mom was my favorite (along with Aunti Ann). I loved coming to your house & could always count on sweet goods to be available. I'm sorry I am unable to come, trying
    to get over bronchitis.

    Hi girls, SO sorry to learn of your mom's passing. She has always been near and dear to my heart. I was so happy she got to see our family this summer. She was a highlight to the reunion. I hate that
    we are unable to be there today and tomorrow. When Peg called last night I was surprised how fast this came. Be with you in spirit. She was a favorite!!!
