Dear Cathy,Barbara and Roberta I just saw this today and wanted to send my sincere sympathy on loss of your mom! I remember her as such a nice lady and very kind and patient with all of us kids growing up around Glenrose and Breeze way back in 50s early 60s! We truly had the greatest generation of parents❤️

Dear Cathy, Barbara and Roberta
I have such fond memories of your mother. We had a lot of back and forth from my house to yours and I always felt like I was one of the family. Although I hadn’t seen her in years she will never be forgotten. God bless you all.
