Rick: I was, so, so sorry to read of your Mom's passing in the paper. She was such an important part of our lives for so many years. I am sure she never had an enemy in this world. I've thought of her so many times over the years. The last time I talked to her was just shortly after Mom died. Please accept my deepest sympathy. Doris MacDonald (Leo's sister)
