    What can I say about a woman who has been apart of my entire life. The picnics. The cottages. The hotel pools. The dearest of childhood memories. l learned so much from her and will miss her dearly. When I hear Sarah Vaughn, Duke Ellington or any classic jazz, I will think of her. When I bake a cake or cook one of her amazing recipes, I will remember her. She was a huge inspiration to me with her gentle way and dry wit. Sincerest condolences to Jen & Rob, Chris & Karen, Vanessa & Jordan and Taylor.
