My sincere gratitude to everyone for their support during a challenging time and for being there for mom, and me. Mom was a very special lady and will be missed terribly. She had a wonderful, long life and touched a lot of people. Thanks so much also to Ron and Audrey who helped her make it to church so many Sundays, to Nan who she looked so forward to seeing every Monday, to the great hospice workers and volunteers and to those who visited her in her last days and brightened her day.

Robyn , one of the best blessings I have had in life was getting to know your Mother. She was so kind to me during my years as organist at First Presbyterian Church. Such a sweet and special lady. You are certainly in my thoughts and prayers during this sad time.
