Condolences to all! I think both her and my mother were both members of the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority. Regardless of how members of Greek campus life may be regarded now, these women provided their families with a moral and ethical compass that has made us who we are. RIP, women like this are rare and we are fortunate to have them in our lives!!
