Everette & Mike - very sorry to hear of your Mom's passing.  I still have fond memories of her from the short time we lived across the street from you on Harris St.  I just got word last night from brother Neill so will be unable to make it down from the northern Shenandoah Valley.  You guys and family are in my thoughts & prayers.
