To Dick, and entire family,
It's been 40 years (!?!) since we were youngsters and attending junior and senior high schools, and many memories have faded. What hasn't, however, was the fact that few, if any of us had halo's floating over our heads. Those weren't the easiest times to raise a family. I also remember that EVERYONE who walked through your front door was treated like GOLD (whether we deserved it or not).
All the decades can't fade the memory of how we were all treated.
If patients, and putting up with the likes of me, and (almost) everyone we knew, earns entrance to Heaven, then the Gates flew wide open for her!
May your Beautiful Mom Rest in Peace.
