Susie and extended family....

I remember your mom so well and the fun we use to have in her kitchen during our junior high years. I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
I was away for the month of February visiting my parents in Florida, so am just now catching up on reading the 29 issues of the Herald Republican while I was away.

Take care, friend, and I am thinking of your and yours....
