In memory of a woman who was the definition of grace and eloquence. I thought of her fondly after all of these years. She was very important in guiding me in my younger life. Jim, Renee and family i am sure this is a grave loss to you all. She was a steady presence in all your lives. I know she was loved as were you all. I am so sorry for another loss in your lives in such a short time. Know that I am sending a prayer your way but remember she has been reunited with her family and will continue to protect you all. With my deepest sympathy. Lynne Corbin
