Dearest Eastman family, I'm so saddened to hear of your Mom's passing. Although I didn't see her many times, the times I did left a lasting impression on me. Your Dad with his rocks and she with the crystals. Sending you hugs and loves at this painful time, and remember the good times...they'll get you through. LaDonna
