Enjoyed meeting and getting to know Your Mother on several occasions. She read continually and kept her mind and her thoughts sharp for such a long time. She will be remembered as a fine little lady. Our condolences on your loss.

What a great lady who I had the honor of knowing for my years. She always had a smart comment (or 2) and a smile!
