Jean and Howard, I send my condolences to you both. I enjoyed my visits with your mother in these last years in particular. I'll miss her--the last of the Heinzman granddaughters. I'm really sorry I wasn't nearby enough to come for calling hours or celebration of her life. Got home last night. I'll stop by at Fantynekill next time down. Love, Barbara
