Donna & Leland,
My condolences on the passing of your mother. Your mother was a beautiful woman and such a help to our family when the passing of my mother, Mary Moreno in 1991. I so rememember the ladies of the “ Penryn Coffee Klatch” gathering in our family home to share what was happening around town. What FANTASTIC memories I will keep so close. All those gals (Jean Price, Mrs Slover, Mrs Houseman, Mrs Decker, your mom and so many others who have slipped my mind) those ladies knew how to have fun!!!
God Bless....Sherrie Moreno
