    Dearest Billy, Joanie, Rachel & JR,
    Our deepest sympathy to you all on the loss of your beloved Mother. I will certainly remember all the times in Chatham that she would be telling wonderful stories over “Mary & Poochie’s ” house! And I am sure she got sick of me asking her how she stayed so beautiful and young looking! A remarkable lady who loved her family so very much! She will be greatly missed.

    love…Barbara & Jimmy

Send your condolences.
