Thank you, Kathy, Susan, Josie and Sue,
Mr. & Mrs. Gibbs, Larry, Kate and Marti, Heidi, Norma & Greg, Judy, Margie, and Mrs. Knisley. We appreciate your kind words and remembrances of our most lovely and wonderful Mom. An original masterpiece of God, Mom remains a beautiful and graceful presence in our every day lives.
". . . love as powerful as your mother's for you leaves its own mark. Not a scar, no visible sign . . . to have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever. It is in your very skin."
- Professor Albus Dumbledore, "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," Chapter 17, by J.K. Rowling
