    So sorry about your mom, Nancy. My mom, Florence Rich, always spoke fondly of her. I believe they were in high school together. Peace to you and your family.

    Thank you Susie.  I thought about you yesterday when I drove past your old house, and remembered our unexpected meeting in Memphis.  I really appreciate your kind words and memory of your mom.
