    We are so sad with the news of your mom’s passing. I have many lovely memories of her over the years. She and your dad took me under their wing many times and made me feel so welcome in your family! Like Bethie, I will remember her laugh, but one of my favourite memories is seeing her sitting at mom and dad’s kitchen table two years ago, cleaning basket after basket of strawberries with them! They all looked so happy and content. I will be thinking of you all, especially on this day, and will say a little prayer for you. Take care.
    Love, Martha xo

    please accept my deepest sympathy on the death
    Of your mother. Marie was a lovely woman such
    an open and warm personality with a memorable
    laugh. I last saw her when she was in her thirties
    & she dropped by my parents Edie & Paul’s home
    I was home for a visit–she had been to a wedding
    and wore a sheath dress & a big black hat & looked so tall & gorgeous!!! A lovely memory.
