I am sorry to learn of the loss of your mother. I worked at CPI with her for many years, and Ann always reminded me, most graciously, that my chart notes lagged behind. She was a wonderful, kind, and gracious lady who will be truly missed by all who had the opportunity to know her. Please know that she lives on in the memories of many.
