Your mom was the best mother in law I could have ever had. Kind, generous, welcoming, and she treated me like a daughter. I was blessed to be a member of your family. She may not have liked to cook, but there are some recipes we consider Huber traditions and will be passed down to future generations. Love you all, Nancy
