So sorry to read about your mother’s passing. May God comfort you and your family during your loss. I think of you sometimes when I’m in Bloomington as we have a junior at IU. The football tailgates are held where your old trailer was located near the stadium.
Perhaps we’ll get to see each other if the postponed Rex Mundi reunion is held this June.
Best wishes,
