Mike, so sorry to learn of your Mother's passing. My sympathies to you and your family. She obviously did a good job by you guys. And reading her bio, I realized she likely worked with my Mother and Aunt during the war. Too bad we learn such things too late. Best wishes ~ Robert Lowe, Trenton, New Jersey
