    Dear Backman Family, Ingrid visited my mom (Marian Newman) frequently when she was in the nursing home. My mom so looked forward to the treats she would bring. I would chat with her at times-she had the best outlook on life. Such a kind,wise and loving person. My deepest condolences to you and your family
