    Sending our love and hugs to all of you. So sorry we can not be there with you. Love Cory and Barbara Lee

  • I just now ran across Sister Jorgensen’s obituary and was sorry to hear of her passing. Things have probably returned to near-normal by now, but I’d wager that Brother Jorgensen still feels his loss acutely. Mom always had good things to say about this woman–I’ll bet they’re still catching up on the other side.
