Darryl and Shepherd,
You are in my Thoughts and Prayers.
I was saddened to hear about your wonderful and beautiful mother. She was very special and enjoyed everything about life. She loved her boys and gals very much and always talked about all of you and how much you did for her.

A few weeks ago she told me about her grandsons wedding at Hunter mountain and sent pictures and I believe went up on the chair lift. We always kept in touch.

What an extraordinary woman! I loved her so much . She will be greatly missed.

God Bless You,

Darryl, Shepard, Jeffrey, What a marvelous woman ! I consider myself fortunate to have known such a dynamic and energetic lady. As a friend and neighbor, I would stop by occasionally just to talk about any and everything that might come up. She would always ask about my family and grandchildren. However, the greatest satisfaction came from being able to help clean up storm damage around the house. She was always greatly appreciative of my help and would generously compensate me and others (usually with beer). A dear and cherished friend is gone. My sorrow for your loss. Lucian Dzialo.

Darryl and Shepherd,
I was very sad to hear the news about your Mom. I loved your Mom very much and I have many fond memories of her! I remember talking with her about being tall and having big feet! She always looked right at home with dogs and horses, just like Maggie. I came across some very old pictures of your Mom, Aunt Lanie, Aunt Marge and my Dad. Your mother always had lovely features and looked a lot like Maggie. I always loved how athletic your Mom was! Lastly, I will never forget telling your Mom that my son, Russell had graduated from Skidmore and she was delighted to hear that! She was a very special person and she will be greatly missed!
My love to all,
