Dear Helen, Lenny, Rich and Mary,

I would like to express my sympathy to all of you. I have fond memories of your Mom. What I remember most is her warm smile and sunny dispsition.

Having lost your Dad, so many years ago now, it must have been difficult for her to go on. But go on she did, to provide for her herself and her family. What a dedicated Mother. What great memories to help all of you get through this difficult time.
