Dear Lynne and Family
So sorry to just have found out that your mom has passed. Gosh, she still looked the same as when I last saw her! Looking back to when we were kids, your mom was so much fun and so creative. I wish I could've spent more time making ceramics with her, she made it so easy. And what a great cook!! I know she will be greatly missed by all of your family. Wish I could've been there to see your family.
