    Sorry to hear of your loss. I have only good memories of your mom (and dad), and time spent with you – when we were much younger. She was always a gracious hostess. I know you will miss her very much.

    I wish your family peace at this sad time. It’s so sad to know she won’t be a phone call away but memories of fun times in the past will sustain us. She was always a fun and sweet aunt that I will miss. Love to all!
