It was with great anguish that I read of Mom Dot's passing. I wouldn't have found it if I hadn't been trying to find Vicky. We shared many interesting talks over drinks lasting late into the night. I'm sorry I had to break my promise. My heart still aches over it. My deepest condolences to Vicky, Paula, Sherry, Rod & Mike. Vicky, if you see this PLEASE contact me. All my best, Rush

Please know that your family is in our prayers. I have wonderful memories of Mrs. Carlon through Paula and from growing up around Maple park. The Carlon home was considered a safe place to go in the neighborhood. Most of us kids roamed that area with out fear. May God's peace, love and grace be with in this difficult time
