Christie and Family,
I am so sorry and saddened by your mother's passing. It was so good to see you both a couple of years ago when we got together with Rosemary at 54th Street. I was always hoping in the back of my mind that we would do it again. Please give my sympathy to your brother, as well. I am thinking of you both.
