Dear Rachel & Family: Just read paper and was very sad to see your mother had passed - she was a wonderful person-always friendly- so sweet - she was only landlady that bought her tenants Christmas gifts. Remember memories never fade - take care. Sincere sympathy, Jim & Claire Farry

Rachel, Tommy, Jeff and family,
I am so sorry for your loss of your Mom. She was always so very nice to me and it was easy to see how much she loved all of her family. At this sad time, I hope you know how much you are loved. Denise
