David I was very saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. My deepest sympathy to you and your wife and brother. May her memory be eternal.

Betty and I were Alexander Manor neighbors. I always enjoyed chatting with her while walking around the neighborhood. I remember Betty spending hours working in her beautiful front yard. And, I vividly remember how proud she was of her new, beautiful kitchen farmhouse sink, she was way ahead of her time!!
She was a lovely lady. Deepest sympathy to Betty’s family.
