Dear Maryann. I am so sorry about the loss of your beautiful son, Stephen. Believe me I have thought of you many times through the years-Betty and Ted were my parents. Aunt Mary´s brother. I know you did an awesome job on your family and you stand proud. I just lost my beautiful husband a couple months ago so I can feel your pain. I wish I could reach out to you- it has been too long. My love and prayers. Karen
