Jill, I am so sorry to see that your sister passed away. I knew your mother and worked with her at Brown Squirrel and Expressway Furniture. She was a true friend and I miss her a lot. We would sit and talk for hours about life. Especially about Eric because my brother did survive a car accident and was paralyzed for 25 years before he passed. Reed asked us to introduce Jan to a friend and they dated for a while. I have wonderful memories of your mother. Again, I am sorry for your loss. Diane Woods
