    I am sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. I know it has been hard the last few years of her life but I know how much I still miss my mother. I remember Lois’s laugh and how much my mother enjoyed seeing her when I would take her for a visit.

    I would love to be there on Tuesday, however I am in our winter home in AZ.
    Fond memories of the times our families got together.

    Fred Redman
