Dear Steve and family - Bill and I were so sorry to read of your mom's passing. There are never the right words to say, the right time to say goodbye, or anything. Please know that our thoughts are with you all, and we hope that your memories will be with you always. Eventually you'll be able to smile again.

Much love
