Condolence & Memory Journal

Gary and I are so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was a wonderful lady, and we have such fond memories of your entire family going back many a year!

Gary enjoyed "watching out" for your mom and was very touched that she called him around Christmas time. They were the last of the original neighbors and he will miss her very much.

I remember babysitting for all three of you,CIh8p and also having Donny dress up in his Sunday best to see me off on my wedding day! So adorable!

Do take care and know that we will think of you often.
