Kurt so sorry to hear about your moms passing. I just lost my Mom 1 year ago in January, I miss her everyday.

Chris and Judy, I am so sorry for your loss. I have very fond memories of your mom when I was teaching at SPPCS and she was in charge of the cafeteria. She always had a smile on her face and was special to both students and faculty. If we can do anything to help you, please let me and Pat know. You are in our prayers.
