  1. My deepest sympathy to all of you. Thanks so much for having the opportunity to help your Mom. Sally,Sam, Matt from Kathy Tillia

  2. To Sally, Sam and Matt:
    You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. I always enjoyed Gladys, and will remember how she used to hover over Matt when he was little, play with Chris and Nick when they were little, and constantly try to get Sally to improve on whatever she was doing. She was a pretty lady and had a beautiful smile. And it makes me happy that through it all, she still remembered ME. Thank you Sal, for introducing me to your mom.
