Jim and Terry,

One of reasons Moms are special is because we all have only "One".

I have many memories of your Mom, especially the great  hot chocolate she made.

Judy and I send our Condolences to you both.

We are sending thoughts of comfort your way.  It was so good to see her on her 100th birthday and experience her sense of humor. She wanted to know why she was still here. I think 100 years is quite an accomplishment.  Rest in Peace, Elifrede.  God Bless.
