Thank you Mom for giving us a passion for cooking, family meals, homemaking, family celebrations, and making others feel welcome. With Dad you taught us that there was no darkness in God, only forgiveness, and grace. You became a world traveler with Melvin and were fond of telling stories of your travels. Mother, you will be sorely missed in the lives of those who knew you.
