Saddened to hear of the loss of Mother . My deepest condolences to the Woodward Family. I remember in the 70's when they were building the Metamora Family Practice in Metamora . Donna said Steve that is the new Pizza Hut .. just look at the distinctive roof shape ! If they paint the roof red we are in luck . I loved her sense of humor .
