We are so sorry for your loss. Your mother was a fine lady whom we had known thru many channels over the years. Her many years running Winfield Foods and helping Cynthia keep the books straight were enjoyable. Terry , I will always remember when she had a bump up in Reeds, I contacted you at the shop, and you said I could handle things with her like I would my own father. It was a true honor to know her. Gary and Cynthia Michael
