Dear Maria, Susan, Robert and family. So sorry for the loss of your Mom. Do you know that she is the first of "The Sisters"that I met at a family gathering when I first started dating David . This lovely lady was sitting at your Aunty Irene's kitchen table eating this huge bowl of strawberry, chocolate and vanilla ice cream. David introduced me to her and she gave me this most warm gracious smile. What a lovely lady. Our beautiful Sapphire will be truly missed. David, Christa, Andrew, and I send our love and prayers of healing.

Mary, although I never met you Mother, I knew she was living across the street. Please accept my sympathies on her passing. I know you were a devoted daughter. Giving up our Mothers is very difficult, but she will be with you in all the memories you have shared.
