Susan - So sorry to hear about your Mother. She was a wonderful person. I remember spending alot of time at your house on N. Howard and I lived on Franklin St. I remember her patching me up when I cut my finger badly one summer. Many good memories. Hope you are doing well. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
