    So sorry to read of Mary’s passing. She’s been in my thoughts a lot lately, because I hadn’t had a chance to see her in August for her birthday.
    She will always have a special place in my heart, for she and Charles did more for me than many others. There’s no doubt in my mind that she’s sporting wings of an angel now.

  • Chuck,
    So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. Parents when they leave us leave a hole that can not be filled. Al and I have both lost our parents and understand that no matter how it happens it is a shock and takes time to accept. We still think on Sunday afternoons that we should be calling Al’s mom for our weekly chat. May you remember her with joy.
