Gary and Family,

When I saw the picture, along with the announcement of your Mom's passing, it brought back a lot of memories of going over to your house when we were in High School. She was a sweetheart to all of us and made a lasting impression because of her kindness and warmth. She tolerated us in such a nice way and with a good sense of humor as well.

I think about those days every time I would run, or walk mostly nowadays, past the house on Reynolds Hill.

Your Mom may be gone, but she will not be forgotten. May she rest in peace.
