    Dear Mike, Dianne, Hilary and Evan,

    I’ve just looked at the notice of your mom and grandma’s passing. I’m glad you have each other as you adjust to the future without a special mom and grandma. I’m sure she treasured each one of you and that you can take a memory of that love with you into the future.

    Warm hugs to all of you,

    To dear Geoffrey, Your mother had quite an extra ordinary life. Many accomplishments, interests and wonderful family and no doubt surrounded by love. I do remember you well, Geoffrey. I had many exceptional students in my teaching career – you were one of them. Have a wonderful picnic in the spring with all your family to celebrate your mother’s beautiful life. Elaine Webber (Jeffery)
