My moms favorite color was green. She looked beautiful wearing it.

I am so sorry for your loss. When she was still working we would always go to lunch together. It was three of us * Dolores, Merna and I (Carol). They called us the Three Musketeers. Lunchtime was an unexpected adventure some times. We would go shopping, taking long walks that would lead us into unusual predicaments in the downtown area. She will be truely missed.
