I am very sorry to hear about your Mother. She was a great lady and I am sorry I didn't know her better. She and my Mom, Margaret Harris, were best of friends for many years. I know that they are again together and happy and having a good time.

It is not the length of time you know someone, rather the quality of that time. In a very short time Ardis brought love, joy and positive thinking into our lives. We will miss our dear friend. Linda and Ruth
