So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. We didn't know of it until Tom came through the line at our mothers calling. You certainly have our sympathy.

Melba was a co-worker with me at the A.G. Luken Drug Co. (Miami-Luken) in Richmond from the time she started until closure in 1988. She was a good friend and one that will not be forgotten.
