Dear Judy and Darwin, I am so sad for your loss! Your Mom was a wonderful lady. Judy, I have fond memories of being at your house when growing up! Also enjoyed visiting her when she and my Mom were both hospitalized in Waterloo years ago. Never a good time to lose your Mom, but hope you are both comforted with beautiful memories!!
