Jill, Jan, Jody and families - So sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. what wonderful neighbors your Mom and Dad were. When the Super Clan - Nancy, Vince & Pat moved in our air conditioner broke - first people tapping on our door were your Mon and Dad with a couple of fans! You were all the best neighbors ever - you made us feel so welcome - wonderful memories. May you find joy and solace in your memories of her and your Dad - now they are together again. Nancy Super
