Bill, Steve and all the family, your mom was always so gracious and nice to me. I was so glad to see her a more than few years ago now in Skaneateles. There isn't a New Years day that comes along that I don't fondly remember our family gatherings in South Otselic and think about everyone. I hope your good memories of your mom carry you past this sad time in good health and spirit. your cousin,
