Randy, you might not remember me...Linda Martin from
CHS. We talked WAY back when I worked at Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge on the pike and you would come in to make reservations
with a confirmation. Anyway...just wanted to send my sympathies to you and your family.
You are very lucky to have had your mother all of those years. My mother died when I turned 50.
