Kathy, I only met your mother once or twice over the years.....but I am so deeply aware of what an incredible mother she was. She raised a daughter who is so kind, so life-loving and so wonderful to be around. By knowing you, I feel a debt of gratitude to her. Sending my love and deepest condolences - Eileen
