Dear Dawn & Scott - So sorry to hear about your mom. She was always such a sweetie to me. I will miss the way she said "Hi Maureen!" anytime I saw her or happened to be answering the phone when she'd be calling for my mom. And I'll always be grateful to her for letting me use her sewing machine to finish my wedding dress! Here is a pic of your parents at our wedding in Sept. 2006. Know that our thoughts and love are with you, your families, and Sonny too of course.

I am sorry to hear about Joan's passing. Just about every week she brought a smile to my face by simply speaking with her at Ivanhoe.
