My deepest sympathy to you and your family, Harry. I went to St. Patrick's and my parents (Anne and Clete Haupert) treasured your friendship. Mom and Imogene spent many hours together at the Y Women's group and just visiting at the house. Imogene was a "good egg" and will be missed.

I had a great mom. As a kid it wasn't obvious to me. The TV moms of the day, like June of "Leave It To Beaver" and Harriet of "Ozzie and Harriet" were near-perfect renditions of what I thought all moms were probably like. It wasn't until later, when I was on my own, that I realized how lucky I was. She was always there for us, offering help or advice, just a phone call away. When e-mail came along, she learned how to use a computer and kept the family connected with frequent updates. As the kids married and went separate ways, Mom still managed to get everyone together at least once a year. Friends who met them would tell me what great parents I had, which by then I was well aware of. Simply put, Mom was kind and loving. I had a great mom.
