Jane, Louis,Bill and Maria, I am so sorry about your Mom's passing and feel terrible that I was unable to visit that one last time. I know that she is with your Dad now and no doubt they have found my folks and have planned a Cribbage game for the near future! Irene was like a second Mom and there are such wonderful memories connected to my visits with her. I know she will be missed by many. Please know that even though I'm not there in person I'm there in spirit and thinking of you all.
