Dear Peg, Sorry or hear of your loss. Before the Covid virus I used to bring Communion to your Mother. A true lady. Oh how she loved you. May time bring you only cherished memories. Virginia Littauer

So sorry to hear about your dear mother Fran. She was a lovely lady and I enjoyed my many talks with her over the years when I was able to volunteer at Noble for events and the tag sales before COVID. May she rest in peace.
