    You as a family are really blessed to have your mom, Eleanor for 100 years. I remember of meeting her for the first time when Richard T brought me to Farmington to meet grandma & Jessie when we were dating…..that’s a long time ago! It was probably sometime in 1955. Sending you my family’s love & sympathy. MaryLou Moll
