Bob, Pam and Bill...
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. Your family was such a big part of my "growing up" years, and as neighbors, your parents were the best. They certainly were great friends of mom and dad. I remember when your mom was a substitute teacher in my Home Ec. class in middle school. I'd like to think she gave me special attention. 😃 Please accept my deepest sympathy and know that you will be in my prayers.
