Bill and Mary: I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet mother. My memories of her go back as far as I can remember in my childhood. She was such a sweet lady and always so kind with such a nice smile. I know she lived a long life but also know that we're never really ready to lose our parents. Garneda Petersen
