Pam and Linda and families, I was really saddened when you told me about your Mom. A lot of memories rolled through my mind and heart. How many late nights did we stay up, and was always told to quiet it down. A lot of memories from junior high on. My heart will be with you all, I apologize I can't attend the service, have a couple of Dr. Appts. Our deepest sympathy, we love you, Cheryl and Bob
