Susan and Elayne, I am so sorrow for the loss of your mother. She was a special lady and I have great memories of her during college. She was always so nice to everyone and made you always feel welcome. I will never forget her smile every time we brought her a frozen chocolate covered banana from Hogan Das. I know you will miss her but your lives are full of her spirit, warmth and love. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
