Cheryl & Debbie, I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your mother. I have many fond memories of her, and of you both from early Paustian family gatherings, since I was about the same age as you then. I also remember her coming over to visit both my dad Jim and my mom Nelda many times. She was such a kind and caring person, and I'm sure you will miss her very much.
