    Dear Terri and family, I'm sorry for the loss of your wonderful Mom. I remember back 25 years maybe, your mom bringing you into Lakeside. A very special caring woman. It was great hearing her brothers were Ray and Ken, who us Robertson's knew so well. I think of you often and miss our chats. With love.
    Sandy retired from Lakeside.
