To Alice, David and lucky you are to have had your mom for so many years. From growing up with you at ESCC to having Dortha sit with my mom when she was dying with cancer in 1987, your mom will always be remembered for her kindness, her patience, and her graciousness. Thank you for sharing her with me and so many other families.

Oh Grammy, I so loved your quick wit, sharp tongue, and goofy sense of humor. You always made the best slipper socks! I still have a few pairs, and I treasure them. I will miss you, but I am glad that you are at peace.
