Dear Bryan, Lynn & Kim ...I am so very sorry to hear of your Moms passing. When I heard the news so many great memories came rushing back..all the years that we were in each other’s lives...crazy cottage days..crazy parties...the friendship our parents shared was so great & lasted for each one of them to the end. I realize words don’t really help much right now so treasure the memories. Ilene was a wonderful lady with an amazing smile..that I will always remember..take care of yourselves & each other...Love Cathy

Sorry to hear about your mom. She was a wonderful person and I am sad she is not with you anymore. I know how much you all loved and respected her. She is a woman to be remembered, kind, giving, full of energy and a great attitude.

I must say I'm feeling her passing in my heart today and I hope the wonderful memories you have of her will ease your sorrow.
