Valerie, Cindy, Roger, and Jodi – so sorry to learn of your Mom’s passing. Yes, a grand age, but there’s never a good time to lose a Mom – no matter her age, or yours! I loved our visits and both our family’s ties to White Hills and Quidi Vidi from way back when! Know you are all in my thoughts and I send sincere condolences from Tom and myself. HUGS.

Roger and Family,
Carol and I were saddened to learn of your Mom’s passing. I remember her as being a very kind and generous lady. One of her legacies will be the substantial number of memories she’s left all of you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very stressful time.
