Cindy, Sue, Chris, Sarah, Ann and Katie,
The collective sense of family looms much larger these days than it did when I was younger and so too does the collective sense of loss. My memory of your mother is that she always left me with a smile and something pleasant to say and it always will be. Everything that happened between Fairmount and Lincoln in my memory is only a moment away and I rely on that frequently, if not daily. I am sorry for your loss and eternally grateful to have been so fortunate to have known your mother as I feel I did: as well as all of you. I truly believe the greatest gift our parents gave us was the ability to remember the good and that is really all I can and chose to recall and hope that each of you to do the same with love.
