Your mom liked to tell a story about the Swamp Swauger, which seemed to be a ghost as it made a lot of noise but left no footprints in the snow. She told good stories. And her letters were so great. I don't think she ever said a mean thing about anybody. She was much loved by all, she was so sweet.
