I just want to add my sympathy to the family and friends of Jeanne Farha. I have known her and her family since she was a young child. We have a mutual cousin from opposite sides of the family, so we have a bit of a "family" connection. She was a loving daughter, mother and wife and will be missed very much. Aunt Velma there are many prayers coming for you from my heart.
