Hess Family,

My sincere sympathies for your loss. I have some great memories of your mom - when I'd see her working as a crossing guard (enjoying all of the children), her calls to me always enjoyable and recipes shared. I'll certainly miss hearing from her but will never forget her smile and laugh.

Love to all,

Cousin Dolores
