  1. Kip, Cynthia, Judy and Susan.
    I just learned of your mother’s passing. I am so sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the services for your Mom as we are leaving on Sunday to go out of town. I worked with your Mom for a number of years and we had a lot of good laughs. I remember her talking about all of the mini-Christmases that you had. She took such delight and pleasure in doing this year after year. She will be missed. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. Val Todd
