Dear Karen,
I was so saddened when Roger told me of your Mom's passing. She was such a kind soul, and so good to my Mom and Dad, Roger, Denise and me. I cherish the memories our 2 families created while we were next door neighbors on Stewart Street. I hope you can take comfort in the love and kindness she showed to so many of us. Freeport has lost a treasure.
