Dear Sandy, Barb and family,
We are saddened by the passing of Aunt Edna. Jose and I were able to visit her several years ago. It brought back memories of sledding on the hill and Sandy's graduation party. I remember that Aunt Edna always had an endless supply of pretzels too.
She will be greatly missed.
Sending you many hugs and love at this difficult time.

Hello Barb and Sandy.
I have just heard of the loss of your mother. You have my deep and heartfelt sympathy. Your parents were good neighbors and good people. My mom passed exactly on the same date but last year so I can understand the feelings that you both are going through.
Again my condolences on your loss.
Your old across the street neighbor.
