Pam, Rob and Charlie I was saddened on hearing about the passing of your Mother this past week. I have very fond memories of her as well as your Father when we had the family reunions all those years ago. The ancient Greek poet wrote over 2,000 years ago "One must wait until in the evening to see how splendid ones days has been". I'm sure as you Mother is looking down on her family alongside your Father she can indeed say, "the day has been splendid" Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
