    Jack, I tried to reach you yesterday by e mail. I am so sorry about your wonderful Mother. My memories of her are vivid. I can see her smile and hear her giggle. How many times have we heard her and Mae, Marion, Dot Horne, Peggy, Billie, and Jean Giggle and Laugh like they didn’t have a worry in the world (They Did)I know Dot is present with the Lord although absent from the body. How Glorious for her to be reunited with her loved ones! I Love You. You know I do.
