Dear Kay and Family,
I was so saddened today by the news of your Mom’s passing.She was like a second Mom to me growing up. I thinkI spent more time at your house than my own. She was such a good role model. She always welcomed me to go to church with your family. I can still see her ironing your Dad’s shirts in the Kitchen. She had a deep love for God an family. I am a better person for knowing her. I am so sorry I am unable to attend the services. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I thank you for being such a good friend and support when my Dad passed. I am sorry I can’t be there for you.
Your Friend,
Patti Salupo
