    Gail, was so sorry to see your mother’s obituary. I was actually looking for you as I have several times over the years, when I thought to use the name Wintle in my search. Your Mom’s obituary came up. The obituary doesn’t say when she passed away but I’m assuming it was fairly recent. Again, I’m very sorry for your loss.
    I would love to hear from you-we lost touch those many years ago but I have fond memories of our friendship and Smith Memorial. I think of you often and have wondered how you were many times in the years since. Hoping to hear from you-Deb
