Dear Dick, I am sorry your Mom died. As time goes by your grief will lessen but it will never erase your memories, so treasure them. I pray that God will give you the comfort you need. Hugs to you and Sandy. Love, Edie

I was one of the lucky ones to have worked at the Grand Union with Maude. She was always kind and willing to teach me to work the register. If you were given a job to do she would come over and help you. She taught me some good life lessons.
