Alfred and family, So sorry to hear about the passing of your lovely mother. Did you know she gave my Mom a "well teethed" silver baby rattle for my little sister, Ruthanne, who was born with developmental problems? That was such a lovely thing for one mother to share with another. I still have the rattle and hang it on our tree every year. This year I will think about your Mom when we celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Dear Georgine, Al and Jim, So sorry for your loss. My parents, Alice and Irv, were very good friends with your folks. I remember the time they stayed at their home in Bermuda. They had the time of their lives. Our prayers are with you.

Dear Family, I am sorry to hear of your loss. As you well know, I have known your Mom all of my life. Her and I continued to exchange Christmas every year since your grandparents left Shades of Death and she always included a wonderful message each year. May she rest in peace.
