So sorry to learn from a friend in Texas that you have lost your mom. I had quite a long visit with her at my mom's funeral 1 1/2 years ago. She was very good and still going strong at that time. I will always remember living in your basement (while our home was being built) and all the fun we had! My sympathy...you will always miss her!
Condolences to you and your family Susan. I think about the good eastside days often. We are in AZ so I won't be able to attend the funeral but I will be thinking of all of you.
