Memories

I wanted to express my sincere sympathy in your mother's passing. I always admired her intellect and gracious demeanor. I last saw her when my husband and I hosted a family reunion at our house about five years ago and talked with her after that. She was always such a delightful person and was so proud of all of you. God Bless. Jean and Mark Menard
