Dear Tony, Connie and Family, I would like to express my sympathy to you both on the loss of your Mother. If she was as kind and thoughtful as her Son and Daughter-in-law, I am sure she was a very loveable lady. Sweet memories of a GOOD MOTHER are priceless. You can find comfort in knowing she is in Heaven with God and you will see her again someday.
