  • Alan and Susan. I am so sorry to hear about your mother. It is hard to believe she was 95. But then it's hard to believe we are in our 70's. Mom has been gone since 1991. They are gone now. I will always remember Mom and your Mother sitting in the front seat laughing like loons while us kids were in the back fighting all of the way. Again I am sorry for your loss. Linda Cooper
