Cathy & Connie Sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I've enjoyed her company many times as she had a great sense of humour & loved a good laugh. She & your Dad & I played many crib games which were fun. Your Mom could "sew like a pro"; I remember her making doll clothes for your Barbies. Take care & stay safe! Lesley (Forbes) Walker
