    Joel, Harold, Barry,

    I was so sorry to hear about your mother. Her kindness was such an integral part of my childhood. My Mom continues at 94, but is doing very poorly. Her heart would break if she knew your mother was no longer with us.

      Dear Cheryl,
      Thank you for your kind words. Mom was active until the very end, and did not suffer or linger, for which we are grateful.
      She was one of the great ones!

      Sorry to hear about your Mom not doing well. My best to you, Barry and your Mom.

    Dear Joel, Harold, Barry:

    I am so sorry to hear of Marion’s passing. We worked together at RI Hospital many years ago; she was one of the most gracious and kind people I’ve ever met. I still use the cookie recipes she gave me; she was an excellent cook. She loved you all very much.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
