Condolences to all of you for the loss of your mother. When I think back, one thing I always remember is that you all had the best smelling clothes, she used awesome fabric softener back when very few people did. Fondest memories growing up with much time spent at the Wykers, the pool, etc., May you find peace with the thought that she is now reunited with your Dad.
