Dear Family,
We were neighbors on Oxford Road when our children were little. My children are India, Burt, and Chris Lee. I have known your mom since high school. She was a beautiful, cheerful lady. We were in garden club together. Whenever I saw her she always had a big smile on her face. She will be missed.
I know you have many great memories of her and I hope that they will keep you strong .
Bless all of you as you grieve. I wish I could be at the service on Saturday.
