To Shirley's family. Was so saddened to hear about your mom passing away. I happened to be away this weekend and didn't find out about your loss until today, Tuesday. I met your mom years ago and kept in contact. In fact I tried to call her at Easter time to find out about her surgery and didn't get a chance to speak with her but left a message. She told me that Sara was coming from California to stay with her. I am so sorry I was not able to be with you at the funeral. Maybe when you get together at camp, let me know and I will try to go up.
