Dick, Elita and Dennis, it is so hard to lose one's Mom. My prayers go out to you and your family. It is hard to lose another member of the Galbraith-Schaeffer family. I'm sorry I couldn't make the funeral but we are up in NY with Leah and her family. Be comforted with your memories of her. ..... --- a cousin, Keeta Kay (Wolfe) Cole
