Eli and AJ I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. Eli I don’t know if you remember me. You use to come to my daycare until you went to kindergarten.I remember we always had a lot of fun and I bet you did well in school. I know you will do good in whatever you want to do. I talked to your Mom one time when I saw her at Schnuck’s. She told me about both of you.
Again, please accept my sympathy.
