  1. Sue,
    Sorry to see your mother passing. Never easy losing parents, and with you so far away.
    Hope you are doing well otherwise. I am back here in SM teaching physics at the HS.

  2. Dear Susie-We are sad to learn of the passing of your mom. You can be forever proud of the way you put your own life on hold for a long time & stood by her in her illness. That helps healing come faster. Tootsie was our cousin & always took a caring interest in what was going on in our lives. We will miss her.
    Wishing you solace & comfort,
    Cousin Sandy
