Alice, Amber, & Troy,
My deepest sympathy on the passing of your beloved mom & grandma. I have so many fond memories of her -sitting around her kitchen table talking & laughing with us, making her delicious homemade pasta, & even trying to teach me to sew. She had such patience! She was always so sweet to me, even including me on Xmas Eve at Aunt Jennie’s. Her family meant the world to her. So I hope you find some comfort in knowing how much pride & joy you brought to her every day. The wonderful memories you shared will be with you always. John sends his condolences as well. Love, Marsha
