    Our sincere condolences to you and your family on the death of your mother Nan. I will always cherish the memory of her wearing the gold medal that she and Rose won at the Senior’s Bridge Tournament. We loved her company when we played bridge at Gogetters and 264 Legion. Sorry we cannot attend the service, unfortunately we will be out of town but our thoughts and prayers will be with you.
