    Dear Greg, Dennis, Jackie and Trisha and families,
    I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Irene’s passing. We have had such wonderful visits in the past. I will always remember her as a strong woman. I picture her sitting at the kitchen table after serving up a mountain of food to have with coffee – always a good chat. I know that her passing will leave a void in your lives. Thinking of you at this time.

    Hugs,
    Marcia

    Dear Greg, Dennis, Jackie and Trish,

    I just wanted to let you know how sad I was to hear of your Mom’s passing. I really enjoyed visitting with her when she was in for her annual eye exam. She was very proud of all of you and her grandchildren. My parents, George and Muriel, always spoke so highly of your Mom’s cooking and gardening. She will be missed very much.
