  9. Dear Roxanne and Lori,
    I was so sad to learn of your mom’s passing. She was such a kind and beautiful lady who approached life with such grace. I was fortunate to bump into your mom a few years ago – we had a good giggle reminiscing about those “spirited” high school days we shared as friends. I will never forget how kind and generous your parents were to me always inviting me on family trips down to Montana. They created a warm and welcoming place in their home for all of us teenagers to hang out in. I will never forget Joan and Leon. Take care of your selves during this sad time. My mom would also like to send her condolences to the both of you.
    Lots of Love,
    Sue Wilmot
