Dear Cousins Bill, Brian and Kathy, On behalf of the extended Franklin family, please know that you are not alone in mourning the loss of your mother. No matter what life threw at her, she seemed to deal with it with a characteristic strength and sense of humor. She will be missed by all of us nieces and nephews. (I am also sorry that the weather and car rental agency conspired to interfere with my trip south this week). Ken Franklin
