I was so sorry to hear about your mom. I enjoyed working with her so much at st.anns in guild six. After I moved north to the Cleveland area I lost touch except for Christmas cards,which hers was always the first one I received. Even after the cards stopped I always thought of her then and when I heard or read of the Scottish games . She was a great person,happy to have known her.
