So many memories! Lunches, knitting (who were the knit wits)? walks, RJS. Each year at Christmas I place beautiful live, well lit Point Settiers in my Bay Window after first having seen them at your house. Each Christmas Season when I sit down at night and enjoy them, I think of you. Always will.

Terri and Tim, I'm sure you've begun to understand how loved your Mom was. I can only pray it is one of many things that will bring you comfort.
