I am so sorry to read about your mom in the paper.  My deepest sympathy to her family.  Your mom was my neighbor at HH and I so enjoyed talking with her about books, life, kids, etc., as well has having coffee or tea (and an occasional glass of wine).    She was my Godsend when my husband had his strokes and enjoyed watching our Chihauau, Rudy, while I was at the hospital.  God received another awesome angel.  She will be missed a lot.

I will miss Jan.  I had placed mah jongg the afternoon she had her mishap.  She was smart, had a wonderful voice (I relied on her perfect pitch to keep me on key), and was very creative.  My deepest condolences to her family.   Rhoda Apfelbeck
