    Jeannine and Family: So sorry for the lose of your Mother. I can remember your folks when I was a little kid. I remember going with Dad up town, which was a big deal then!!! And I can remember seeing and talking with your folks over a cup of coffee. They were always so nice to me, and talked to me. She will be greatly missed. Ann
