Dear Linda and Victor, very sorry for your loss. I loved your Mom. When I was little I was never sure if she were my Aunt or my Cousin. Doesn't matter, loved her either way. She's been very supportive to my "side" of the family through the years and we will always cherish her memory. Much love, cousin Heidi Amlaw, Vermont
