    Amy, Eric, and Larry. Thinking of you all as you gather later today and tomorrow with family and friends to remember the life of your mother. I am so sorry for your loss. I will never forget her bright smile and infectious laugh. She brightened so many family gatherings thru the years of my childhood. In later years I always enjoyed seeing her and talking with her at our family reunions. I love Rich's sentiment that she's moved on to the next family reunion. I'm sure she was welcomed with much love. Peace to you all
