So sorry to hear about your mother’s passing, Liz, Barb and Fred. I always enjoyed my conversations with your mom. She loved you all dearly and was an especially proud grandmother. We joked about so many things, especially her age, being a leap year baby as she was. Her smile will be sorely missed by all who were blessed to know her.
