Dear Ann, Daniel and John,
My parents were friends of your mother and father and my mother thought your mother was a delightful person with such a witty personality, full of grace but also able to make a friend feel special with her wonderful sense of humor. I recall her father, Mr. Russell, had a similar dry sense of humor. I know you will think of your mother every day and I hope that warm memories sustain you during this sad time.
