My thoughts are with you and your family at this time. My mom died Feb 10 and they were classmates I believe. I saw your mother at the Duke Center United Methodist Church more times than I can count and I can't think of the church without remembering her. My heart is with you.

Sorry to hear of Toot’s death. I have fond memories of both her and Fred. They were wonderful friends to my sister Mary and her husband Bill Tremaine, with whom Fred worked. Heartfelt condolences to the family.
