I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. My Grandmother was Ruth Moran and Wally and my Mema were such good friends for many, many years. I have some things that Wally crocheted still. She was always so hilarious and had the best twinkle in her eye. She will be missed. I can see all the "Ladies of the Lake" together again playing Bridge and laughing and having a wonderful time together. Our sympathies to everyone. Much Love, Jennifer Moran Anderson and Kevin Anderson.
