    To Karen, Susan, Wendy, John and all your spouses, children and grandchildren, please accept my deepest condolences on your moms’ passing. I haven’t seen any of you since we were children but I have happy memories of visiting with you all, and your mom and dad. Your mom was a lovely woman and I am sure she will always be with you, watching over you.
    God Bless you all,
    Cousin Vicki (Al’s daughter)

    Karen, Susan, Wendy and John, Both Cathy and I were shocked to hear of your very dear mother’s death on Monday last and we unfortunately were not able to attend her funeral as were down In Easton, PA meeting our daughter Tricia and her husband Neil. Your mother was truly a wonderful lady who was always dressed impeccably and always wore such a kind and sweet smile. She was a lovely neighbor while we lived across the street in Bloomfield and I enjoyed frequent visits to her beautiful home in Farmington before your Dad’s death. You have so many treasured memories of her and those will help heal you during these difficult times as you grieve her death. The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells in the sand. The sun goes down but gentle warmth still lingers on the land.The music stops yet echoes on in sweet refrains. For every joy that passes something beautiful remains and you, Karen, Susan, Wendy and John and your children are her special legacy. Treasure it and keep it alive.

    I was lucky enough to be able to call your mother my friend, though only for a few years. You were lucky enough to call her mother, always. A wonderful laugh, a great bridge player (partner), a beautiful lady. I’m so sorry for your loss.
