Dear Kathy, Sheila and Sandy,
I had only met your mother on several occasions ( such a sweet and kind woman ) but always felt like I knew her so well from all of the stories of the Good times that you girls had together with her. And, from all of those stories I always knew that she loved each and everyone of her children and grandchildren unconditionally.
My heart goes out to all of you and I hope you can find the peace and strength you need to get you through your grief.

With all my love and prayers,

Joe Clifton
