  1. Dear Lori, John, and Families,

    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your mom! She and your dad were such wonderful, thoughtful neighbors to my parents, and we were so grateful for their help after my dad died. I pray your loving memories of her will comfort you in your grief.
