We send our sympathy at this sad time. I (Nancy) will always remember the hospitality and pleasant company when I visited to work on a little behavior modification with Mrs. Britt's dog. Lovely home, interesting and fun Mom, and pleasant dog accompanied by a great breakfast! I know you will all miss her.
