Sending caring thoughts heartfelt prayers to the entire Brandys family. It’s been so very many years since our families lived side by side on Holly Hill Drive, but all of the lovely memories remain. Your mother was a dear and delightful person. I will remember her smiling face always.
PS. I am Margaret’s next oldest sister and one that used to babysit you from time to time.
