To Pam and Mike,
We are deeply saddened to here that your mom has passed. Your mom's personality always made us smile.
Occasionally I would see you mom when we visited from Texas to my childhood home in Metairie.
So many memories from my childhood and your mom was a part of my young years.
She is sadly missed.
Much love to you.
Sue Ellen Zimmerman Lombardo and family
