      For those of you who knew Mom but may not have known her complete story, I would like to share it with you. Mom saw a lot of loss in her life. Born in a house on Cross Street, she lost her twin brother "Richard" two weeks after they were born. When she was ten years old she lost both of her parents in the same year. She was widowed in her 50's when Dad passed away at the young age of 49. She saw all 8 of her siblings pass before her, including 4 brothers who served in WWII whom she was so proud of. And the loss of many, many Friends. 

Now we mourn her loss. 

I know you are dancing with the angels. May you rest in peace. I love you and will miss you always.

Your loving daughter and buddy,
