  2. Adam, I am so sorry for the sudden loss of your mom! No words can help at this difficult time in your life. I just want you to know that your mom’s smile was beautiful while she watched you being on your own. You made her a proud mom and added the name of grandma she enjoyed so much. Always remember her proud smile and keep hugging “squeezing” Cora by saying Grandma hugs. I did love her wise and calm demeanor while having a couple of puffs.

  3. Cheryl was a great college to work with. I had worked with her for many years. She will be missed.
