Sandy, Words cannot not express the sadness I feel when I think of the loss of your mother. What brings me back to a smile is remembering all of the fond memories I have of her while we were growing up. From the classic "no thank you helping" (thanks to her I now love Brussel sprouts), spiking the punch that I unknowingly got drunk on, to her weather forecasts that always managed to get us where we needed to be in a western New York winter. The roller skating parties she always took us to, all of the band concerts she sat through to the 40th birthday cake she specially made for me. My heart fills with joy and happiness remembering the smile and laughter she filled a room with her presence. I do have a life time of memories that I will always feel blessed to have. I am here for you my friend, always and forever to get you through these tough times.
