Armel Family,
Please accept my sincere sympathy on the passing of your Mom. Many years ago I loved spending time with both your Mom and Dad. I enjoyed my time working with your Dad at RC. They always greeted me into their home with warmth and love. They both were very special to me.Your Mom and my Mom exchanged Christmas cards for many years. She was a very special lady .
