Such a grande dame! Your beloved mother will be sorely missed. I so enjoyed coming over to your home and reminiscing about the old school days at Cox HIgh School. I would like to attend the funeral. Kindly send me all the particulars of the Quantico funeral. Surely she is in Heaven Robin. What a wonderful example of how a lady should be. I loved being in her presence. She was a ray of sunshine. I send all of you my deepest condolences. Abundant blessings. Carol and Bill Hart
