Dear Charmaine and family, I am so saddened to hear about your moms passing. I just heard from Mary Rysz. I have so many memories of you and your folks growing up! You were all part of my childhood. I realize that your mom had a good, long life, but it is always so final. Please keep in touch. I see that you have 5 grandchildren- how wonderful. We just added twins, so now have 4 grandchildren. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and a big loving hug. Love, Joanie

I will miss your warm hugs and strong supportive words, which on more than one occasion guided me well. Greet Uncle Eddy with a big loving hug from me and know I will remember you in my prayers with love and a smile.
