Mary Kay and Melaine, I am SO sorry. I am praying for you all. Your Mom was such an amazing person. We talk about ALL our IA friends often. I am staying with Mom and Dad since Jan. They are having a tough time managing on their own, so this has worked out well. I wish we could ALL be there but that is not possible . Know that we are all thinking of you and sending prayers, hugs and love.
Remember the night we all went to MO for fireworks? The fun and crazy stuff our folks did with/for us all!!

Love and PAX,
Tom Yost

Dear Mary Kay & Melanie & family,
I am so shocked & saddened to read that Margret has passed away! I hope to see you 'girls' & give you a hug. But I may not be able to attend, so I wanted to be certain to send you my sincere sympathy & a verbal hug. Your mother taught right beside me at Cornell in the 'open spaces pod' for 4 yrs. She 'taught me the ropes' when I was just a young teacher out of college. Her buoyant personality & smiling face & helpfulness was priceless that 1st year. Margaret was my lifeline. I've never forgotten her & thoroughly enjoyed our occasional encounters in town & our lively conversations. She was always delightfully engaging & radiantly upbeat. I pray God will comfort you & give you strength, courage, peace & assurance as you cope with your devastating loss.
