Dear Shawn, Corinne and Family,
Paula and I are so sorry to hear of your mother passing. I am sure you know how fond we were of her. When we think about special people in this world your mother tops the list. She had a way of always making a person feel welcome and special. A gift indeed. I hope they are ready for her in heaven because when she meets up with your father and my parents I am sure they will raise some hell!!!
Our deepest sympathy,
Love Lou and Paula Friedman

I will always cherish the memories of being around the house with you, taking care of you, and our long talks about Italian recipes.
I will miss you, and I will be with you again. I love you. Hugs and kisses. Vic.
