    Dear Dianne and Marci: Thank you so much for letting me know about your mom. As you know so well, she was a special person in my life. She and your dad became my family for all the years I was at Belmont, and lived in Nashville. Their relationship was an inspiration and their service-oriented life touched so many. I know you two had to share them with all of us….thank you for that gift. You are both your mother’s daughters and I know your lives reflect her goodness every day. My sympathy and love to you all.
