I am so sorry about your Mom, she was quite a character! She was always so much fun to be around. I enjoyed all the years I bowled with her, she had us laughing all the time! I think my favorite memory of her was when I first started dispatching on dogwatch (way back in 1980) and she was our supervisor. That was when smoking was still allowed in the unit. She would walk around the room, talking a mile a minute, with her cigarette hanging out the corner of her mouth. She never dropped an ash on anybody, and she never missed a word!! I will truly miss her. Prayers of comfort to you and your family...Trish Downey

I remember when Donna and my brother would come to Ca to visit. She and i would go play bingo while the guys when on fishing boat. Then we would all go to Las Vegas for a few days. She was such a lovely and fun lady. I will miss her so much.
