Dear Loretta and Kelley,
So sad to hear that your wonderful mother has passed away. She was always such a dear and loving person, no matter where our paths crossed, she was so loving and giving.
She was so proud of her family. She will be sorely missed.

Please accept my deepest sympathy.

With love and prayers,
Phyllis O'Hara
