    Patty, Mimi, Danny and Sally,
    I have good memories of your Mom. I remember the time she took a car full of kids to Holy Hill. On the way up a steep hill she said the car couldn’t make it up so we all started rocking thinking we were helping! Your Mom had a great laugh and smile. I am sorry I am not able to express my condolences in person. I am thinking about you and your families at this sad time.
