Terri,
So sorry you had to suffer another loss so soon, but I know the past few years have been tough for Rose. I’ve missed seeing her sitting outside on the patio. Deepest sympathy to you and your family.

Larry, Terri, and Pat. So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Mom and I discussed many of the good times in LaVale with your family including the infamous “horn honking” case. I thought the description was spot on with the tell it like it is and humor. I often tell the stories to my wife about being at your house and setting all the lighters to max flame size. Your mom would light a cigarette, nearly torch her eye brows and cuss me out because she always knew it was me, then joke around with me the next minute. She was always interesting and always good to me. Thoughts and prayers to the whole family.
