Robyn and Gary my heart goes out to you and your family. I have wonderful memories of sitting at your kitchen table listening to the radio and doing our homework while your Mom was getting supper ready. I can still see her standing by the stove stirring something as she would give us that look when we were laughing harded then we were studying. She knew all the answers to the questions we were unsure of but most of the time she made us look up the answers for ourselves in the encyclopedia. When I left to go home you would walk me half way home and then I would walk you half way back. This could take all evening and your Mom would just smile and remind us supper was ready so please don't take all evening. They are wonderful memories for me and I loved your Mom she always made me feel like I was part of the family. She will be missed. All my love and prayers to all of you.
