Dear Mike, Mary, Marie and Lucy, you have my most sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. It seems like just yesterday that I was running between two houses, playing in the driveway and back yards with the big sheep dog while Uncle Don and Aunt Red would do their best to tame this 5 year old child. So many fond memories. May you also cherish her memories now.

So sorry for the loss of your Mom. I remember her wonderful laugh, just hearing it always brought a smile to my face.
I will keep you in my prayers.
