I'm so sorry to hear of your mother's death. I taught with her at Negaunee High School for ten years. We were good friends.I always remember her starting the Thursday Iron Skillet and the wonderful meals she had her students prepare and serve us teachers. She was a great lady and now will be united once again with John. I wish my wife and I could be with you at the funeral, but we are presently on our way to Florida. We will keep all of you in our prayers.
