    So sorry for your loss. I know how close you and your Mom were. You always were so thoughtful and inclusive toward her, including her help at the craft fairs and the many cups of afternoon coffee you would bring her. These memories will remain with you.
    In sympathy,
    Mary Ann and Ted Pierce
