    Kevin I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing, I have meant to get over to see her since she came home from the hospital, but I didn’t get the chance. I enjoyed seeing her in the hospital we told everyone of our boys playing hockey together and I enjoyed talking to her there. The minute I saw her at the hospital it was like being at the rink again. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, she was a wonderful lady. Phil, Donna and boys.
