So sorry to read of your Mom's obituary in the Times Herald. I remember her coming to the Olean YMCA early on in my career (80's). She was a regular with her friends, Peg Wright and Nina McMullen; together they'd come in with their yoga mats to do exercises on the floor. Later on choreographed aerobics came in and they loved exercising to music! They had a great friendship and we looked forward to welcoming them on M/W/F mornings.
Your parents are both now resting just down the road from my parents. I think of your mom whenever I'm out there and pass by her stone.
Hold your memories close to heart, they will give you warmth in times of sadness.
