Susan: When I opened the newspaper this morning, I was drawn right away to the sweet, familiar face of your lovely mother. Much love to you and the family, from me and all the Mash “children.” There are saints in our midst, and I pray they will take us by the hand one day to their perfect place. God bless you all.
