George and I are so sorry to hear about your mom’s passing. She was so good to us and helpful when the kids were in school in Avon. She was a very nice lady. She also raised a lovely daughter who was a wonderful asset to GMI.

Thinking of and praying for you at this difficult time.

I have nothing profound to say. I though she was a hot ticket, a lot of fun to goof around with, and I really liked her.
