  3. So sorry for your loss. Your mother was such a beautiful woman inside and out. She always gave me a good laugh on the days I’d come do my visits with her. We would always laugh about how she called me “Can’t see”. My deepest sympathies to your family.

  4. Such wonderful memories of sweet Gina and Mike. They were a major part of my growing up years as they were dear friends of my mom and dad. You all have our thoughts and prayers.
