I'm perpetually taken by surprise with how time barrels on. We're approaching two years since Mitch passed? I miss her practical energy, her roll-up-your sleeves, get-er-done attitude and her laughter at the absurdities of life. She fought bravely and hard to the end. Now requiescat in pace, Mitch. Your absence leaves a hole in our hearts.

Dearest Bob, Maggie, Peter and Wil: John and I will miss your mom. She was a model for us all on how to Love, positive mental attitude, strength in adversity, humor, and straight talk.
