I’m so sorry for the loss of your Mom.
I remember her fondly growing up with Jane and having lunch at the house. We were fortunate to be able to walk to the house from St Michael’s school to enjoy a homemade lunch. I always loved those days. She made a killer grilled cheese sandwich. I had never tried grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatoes or onions and I always loved them. I remember those days fondly. Your Mom was such a sweet person.
