Francine & Becky: You both have my deepest sympathy! The first memory that comes to my mind about your mother is the time that she hospitably opened her North Hill home to my parents & me. I know that your dad was a very good friend of my dad. Your dad died the year that our daughter was born. My mom graduated from Garfield in 1938. She would have been 99 on the 17th of this month. I always considered you both friends; & still do. 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18
