  1. Elaine,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. But upon reading it, many good memories came back. We haven’t crossed paths in years, but I remember our gang and all the good times we had. Not too many of us can say we were friends as well as all of the parents being friends also. I will pray for your quick healing and the happy thoughts that she has rejoined family and friends and maybe even catch a game of Bridge .
    Sheryl & Roy
