    Jud and family, I was sorry to see online that you lost your mom this week. She had a long life but it is still hard to let them go even when it is time! Know that I am thinking of you and your sisters and family this week. May have wonderful memories that will live with you forever.  An old friend forever, Kathie Wingert Thompson
