I will cherish the memories of when you were children, and your mom, Pat, and I were young. We shared so much at work and remember the sadness I felt when you moved to Georgia. The last time we met was on the beach in Florida in 1986. I look at the pictures of the past and at the ornaments on the tree she gave me and smile. Though miles apart she was and always will be remembered. I'm sorry for your loss and sorrier still she had to be sick. Know she will be remembered. Before you moved she made sure her sister Dona and I had each other , a gift for sure. Love to you all.
