Kathleen and Sharon...I'm so sorry to know of your mom's death. I remember her so clearly and dearly from our days at Cashell and the fun and laughter we shared working on different PTA projects. I wish I had even a small portion of her strength and courage in her later years.
Love to you both and your families as well. Cathy Lyon (Keith's mom)
Catherine S. Lyon
