    Hello Debbie and brothers, Your mom was so pretty. I remember visiting in high school and she reminded me so much of my own mother; lot of kids around but always room for one more. I’m so sorry for your loss while smiling at the happy memories that I know you share. The sense of humor in your family was so apparent. Debbie, I hope to see you around Sheila’s pool again soon. My sincere sympathy. Sande Beard Meyer
