    My sympathy to you all.  Don and Betty were neighbors of my Grandma Emma Robinson.  Betty was always so sweet.  I lived with Grandma for awhile in the late 80's.  I loved that neighborhood, they all looked out for each other.  Please know I have fond memories of your Mother.  Again, my sympathy.

    Dan, so sorry to hear about your mother!!  Just know that she was always a good friend to my mother - even when mom was spiraling down with her dementia.  Judy (Stumme) Wiechmann
