  2. Colleen and Kevin,
    So sorry, your Mom will be remembered for her love of animals and photography. I remember when she visited the family in Iowa, she brought her dogs and loved to talk about the history of Washington DC when she lived there. Said it was one of her favorite places. Thinking of you and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,
