So sorry to hear about your mom's passing, she was such a nice person, always so upbeat when I would run into her. Remember babysitting for you three girls, such a long time ago. Will keep all of you in my thoughts & prayers.

I adored Jane and loved her sharing her stories and pictures about flying with TWA. She was so full of life and just fun to be around. She so loved her family and talked about them so much as well. She will be missed horribly by all who knew her.

Donna, Nancy, and Sally - wishing you comfort and peace during this sad time. I'll miss your mom, she was a great lady, always kind and thoughtful. We always tried to stop and say "hi" when we returned to visit Arlington Heights.
