Dear Paula, Linda and family, So sorry to hear of your mothers' passing. We had a great time growing together as neighbors and friends. I'll always cherish the memories. Because we have those she will always remain a part of life on earth. It was always something special when I ran into her, she never changed, always looking like she did when we were children.
