I am so sorry to hear of your Mother's passing. Please accept my sincere sympathies. She and my mom, Jane Brown, were great friends while at Trinity. I used to take them little bags of hard candies, and you wouldn't believe the happiness it brought them, and me. Once again, I am really sorry for your loss.

Jennifer and Dick Caniff
The family of Jane Brown
