Hard to believe. .. 104 years! I feel like her passing is an end to a special time in my life. Such wonderful memories of Beloit (that's where I was terrified by the movie Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea), and fun times in Lawrence and at the airport. Special friends. . .special memories. Love to you! Cindy
