Dear Sylvia, Guy, Dawn, Robbie, Hope, Debbie, and Families,
We were very sorry to learn of the passing of your beloved Mother and Grandmother. What a wonderful lady she was! We know you have many happy memories, but we want you to know that you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
With love and sympathy,
I don’t know if you remember me but we lived beside your Mom and Dad for several years. My Mom died when I was 9 and we moved away. Your Mom was such a good friend to my Mom and to me as well. I have such fond memories of her. She was so kind, generous and loving to me after my Mom, Thelma, died. I’m sorry for her passing but she was a wonderful lady. I remember fondly Willie and Dawn Marie and them coming to our house for cookies. My best wishes to your whole family and my sympathies as well.
