I am very sorry to hear about your mom's passing. What a beautiful woman she was. I have many happy memories of living across the street from your family in Rosecroft Park. My mom, Alice Girillo, was very sad when I told her about your mom. I know my mom and dad enjoyed your mom and dad's company and being neighbors. Sending hugs and prayers to you and your family to help you through this sad time.
