Dear Toni and Roberta,
I was sorry to learn of your mother's passing in the Standard-Times. I had wanted to visit so often but there was always something to do, either as guardian of my great-grandson or helping another family member. Your mother was a role model. I have wonderful memories that we shared. I will continue to think of her, especially when August rolls around as our birthdays are only a couple of days apart. You have my most heartfelt sympathy.
