    I am so sorry, I just (today) found your mother’s obituary. I didn’t know about it, or I would have been there for you. I called her a few times over the years and she was always very happy to hear from me. She was a wonderful gracious person and I have thought of her often over these 50 years.
    May God keep you and your family in his care.
    God bless,
    Love and Prayers,
