My condolences on the loss of your mom. I recently was sharing P.S. 45 memories with family and thought of you and your mother. She was a special lady and influenced many lives in her years as as teacher. All my best. Karen

Hi Merri, I just learned about your mother´s passing from Vincent Giovinazzo, of our old Staten Island neighborhood. (I live in Virginia now, but our group of friends keeps in touch). My condolences to you and your entire family for your loss. It does sound like your mother had a remarkably full and long life. Nice to hear that she was nearby to you in her final years. With all best wishes, John Urbach
