Dear Carolyn, Diane, Judy and families,
It is with a heavy heart that I send my sympathies to you all. Your mother was the ideal Mom and homemaker. The home your mother created for you was one I always considered to be comfortable and cozy. She had so many wonderfully creative gifts that she passed onto all of you. ( a wonderful gardener,cook, artist, seamstress, decorator ...to mention only a few)
I look forward to sharing time with you at the future celebration of life you are planning in her memory.
Much love
Many thoughts and prayers to you at this time
Lynne and Rick

Grew up next door to the Longo family and spent many hours in w them in their home. Mrs Longo’s flower beds were so beautiful and it encouraged me grow flowers, and as an adult I did. Her strawberry jam was the best. Wonderful memories of both Mr and Mrs. Our family send condolences to you all. ❤️
