Sally, I was sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I didn't realize that you were an only child like myself. Your mom was in the home for many years, and I worked at Bethesda for a couple of those years. She was always so pleasant and a very nice lady to serve. I just talked to her at the end of March when I was there for Susie Kapphahn's birthday. May you find comfort in your many fond memories of her. God bless you and your family.
