Im so very sorry to hear of your mothers passing. As a classmate at Whiteford High School we were friends and and I had tried to contact her several times in the past few years about class reunions but just couldnt make the connection. Mail was returned to me. The photo from her obituary is just how I remember her. When she joined our class she taught us country girls to wear jewelry and perfume to school! After high school some of us visited and met for lunch several times. She and your dad invited us to a fall party at your grandparents barn too. Im sorry we lost touch. As an only child I can imagine the enjoyment she had with her big family. Find comfort in sharing memories of happy times. You have my sympathy.
