Janet, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear Mother. I have so many fond memories of spending time with your family and babysitting for you, Cindy, Mike, and Lori. After my brother Dick passed away, I lost contact with Walt so didn’t have updates on your lives. Please extend my sympathy to your Dad and your brother and sisters. Wishing you comfort and sweet memories of family time.

I lost track of Rosemary and you after you moved to the Athens area. I had the pleasure of working with Rosemary at ASEA in the 80’s. She was like my second mom. I remember going to antique shows and her face would just light up. She was such a wealth of knowledge. She was one of the kindest individuals I’ve ever known.
God bless you and your family during this trying time.
