So very sorry for the loss of your mother. I remember her so well on Dunbar. In the summer, your mom and mine would be visiting out on your front porch after dark and we'd sit in on the "grown up" conversations. Best wishes to you all!

I didn’t know you Elinor but I can imagine the person you were by the loving, articulate, personable just plain remarkable woman that you raised that I do know. Andy, words can’t express how sorry I feel for you and your entire family. I remember the smile that always adorned your face when you spoke about your Mom in your kitchen in Avon . May all the cherished memories you have of your Mom sustain you at this terribly sorrowful time.
