    My wonderful Godmother recalled to Heaven after 91 years of performing her Angelic duties here on earth. So many happy childhood memories. Love and condolences to Deb, Kathy & Kristin as well as to the extended family (especially my Larson uncles, aunts & cousins who have now lost the last of a generation). Prayers for all!
