One thought on “Rachel C. Morton

  1. Dear Naomi, Bob, Judy, Karen and Linda,
    Your mom had a way of making me laugh and the most favorite story and memory I have of her is when we attended a wedding in New Hampshire many years ago. Your mom and I showed up at the wedding wearing exactly the same dress. We laughed and laughed and laughed! My heart is saddened for all of you as you enter this difficult time. I send you my love and prayers and fond memories.
    Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let the perpetual light shine upon her.
