    Gail, Faye, Owen, Donna and families: I am so very sad to hear about your mother’s passing. I always enjoyed your Mom’s humorous personality. (I think she and I are somewhat alike in that we enjoyed a beer or two!) She will be missed. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. In deepest sympathy. Karol
