My condolences to you all--Myron, Rosemary, Stephanie, Stephen--on the loss of your dear mother and grandmother. She was one incredibly lucky woman who lived healthy and sharp well into her 90's, was surrounded by the love of her family, lived at the home of her son and dtr in law while she was safe and able, was well-respected by so many in the greater community she served and did not want for anything. She also was fortunate to welcome her great-grand-dtr, too. Now, that is a life well-lived. How many of us would be so happy to have such a long, satisfying life! May your many memories console you and bring a smile to your faces as you remember so may special moments. Know that I am thinking of you all and wish I was there to hug you in your sorrow.
