Steve and Tom,
So sorry to hear about your mother's passing, but she had good, long, and full life, and was surely proud of her sons.
Doesn't seem like the same neighborhood without the Ouderkirks here.

Very sorry for your loss. My mother, Janet Carlson, and your mother were close friends over many years in West Bridgewater and Punta Gorda, FL. Our mothers attended WB schools and graduated the same year. They stayed in contact over the years until your mother moved to PA. Andy and I were classmates. My mother is still with us and was very unhappy to hear of her passing.
