Linda, Teresa, and Carolyn--Fate had us walking the same halls, sitting in the same chairs and battling with the same emotions for the last few weeks. I always knew that when I spotted one of you, I could count on a hug, a handsqueeze, or a whispered, "how are you?". I'll always remember your Mom's chewbread and her daughters' sweet devotion to their Mother. Keeping you close!
