    I was saddened to hear of your mom’s passing. She and I worked together at Oldsmobile years ago and, with Pam Ballard we enjoyed ceramics back when your mom and dad were operating the studio in their ‘spare’ time. The last time we spoke she seemed to be enjoying retirement and the rural life – I wish she’d had more time, but then we always wish that for those we love. Sending love and support in this difficult time.

    Kim: Prayers for you and your family. Your mom was a great lady with a great laugh. I will never forget the ceramic days with her. Her and your dad kept me on my toes but it’s a time in my life I will never forget! They were both a lot of fun. Hugs to all of you and prayers for strength to get through.
