Dear Patti, Doreen and Janice: Words cannot express the sorrow in our hearts for the loss of your beloved Mom. Maybe you can take some measure of comfort knowing that we will always remember the good times we shared with your family in their house, where your mother made people feel warm and welcomed. May she rest in eternal peace with your Dad in heaven. God bless. Love, Nancy & Greg
