  1. Dear Ron and Judy,
    I was so sorry to see that this Mother’s Day your Mom could not be visited. You have my deepest sympathy and as you grieve this loss together know that others are thinking of you.
    Again my deepest sympathy to you and your whole family.

  2. Very sincere condolences to my dear friends Ron and Judy, Sandy and Ray and your families, on the passing of your wonderful mother. On my irregular trips to the USA from New Zealand, my visits to Thelma have always been both a priority and a highlight. I would visit her as often as possible during those trips and we would chat happily about almost anything. It was always sad to leave her, and I will long remember that smiling face as she waved her good-byes. I feel privileged to have known her and, indeed, loved her dearly.
