Just a note to thank you for the joy of meeting your mom. I could sense a wonderful sense of humor as we visited and she shared memories of your dad. My love and prayers to you all. My husband and I are winter Texans and I just learned of your moms' death. In reading the obituary my husband, Mel noted that your folks used to on Willow St. near his Uncle Warren. Again thank you for sharing your mom with me; I was blessed. Love to you all, Mary & Mel
