Dear Annamarie,
So sorry for your loss. I still recall the time we went to the parade in Romeo with your mom. She loved a parade. May she rest in peace and let the perpetual light shine upon her. May your fond memories of her help you in this very trying time.

I was many years ago, her newspaper boy. She was like a 2nd mom. Always had time to listen. My sister would see her in the local store from time to time, and she always sent a hello. Many years have come and gone, but she will always be in my thoughts . A great lady when she was here. And now she's in haven helping out.
