Kathy, Ron, and Karen - I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I actually chatted on the phone with her at the beginning of September - during one of her weekly calls to check in on my mom... Even though I haven't seen her in many years, I still have extremely fond memories of when my brother E.J. and I were children and would visit your home in Chicago and in Colorado. Your mom was always so upbeat and happy - just a total personification of sunshine and the seldom seen goodness in humanity! She remained positive until the end and I have no doubt that she is looking down upon us all and encouraging us to be the best that we can to each other with the relatively short time that we have on this earth... I will be making a donation on her behalf to the Pueblo Zoo - because of course she loved animals, and so do I:)
