Dear Judy & Rich, we remember your mom so well and how she always welcomed us into her home. You are so very much like her. We are sorry we couldn’t be with you today, but as you know I have been very sick and wouldn’t have wanted to expose anyone to my germs Tom & I love you and Rich so much. Know that you are in our hearts and prayers at this very sad time. We know she is at peace and praying for us now. God Bless you both.
Love, Tom & Carol
