Wow! There was a time when I called her mom. Those were good times back in the late 60s when I would come up from down south(Pompton Plains) where dad was a minister and spend the summer baling hay and driving the back roads of Sussex. Right Rich? I remember her as a wise and loving mother with always good things to eat. My condolences to the Byma family from Tim and Carol VandenHoek
