Richard- so sorry to read about your mother's death. I will always remember when you lived on Route 25 in Anna. You and your brothers had such a fun time playing. Am so glad to keep up with your family through Joan's Christmas letter. It is hard to believe that your children are so grown. I remember when you got married and it wasn't that long ago. Time flies fast when you are having fun!
