I was so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. Elaine was such a special woman with lots of love and kindness to share. I will miss seeing her on my trips to Iowa and exchanging letters as we did over the last few years. Her absence will be difficult to bear but with enough time, hopefully, the pain and sadness you feel today will fade and you will find much comfort in the memories, the laughter, and the love you all shared. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.
