Alan & Marcia, I was so sorry to see that your mom passed away. I am a cousin of your dads and Lisa Nelsons mom, but worked with your mom at Runciman years ago. We were both parapros and I always enjoy my visits with her. Her beautiful smile and warm personality made her very well liked. We also worked on a few vacation bible school together. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
