Have fond memories of your mom, especially at the pot luck dinners; we had great fun at Peace Church growing up. Lib and Lucy were a fun pair! Thinking of you all at this time.

To the children, I fondly remember your mother. She always was so enthusiastic and exuberant, such a joy to be around. I especially remember the times at Blowing Rock Assembly Grounds on Peace Church retreats. You are in my prayers.
