    Dear Jamie,

    I am very sorry to learn of your Mom’s death.

    I appreciated sitting at the same table at lunch at the Cranston Senior Center for the few short years I attended.

    Your Mom was a warm and kindly Lady and spoke highly and lovingly and proudly of you. Your Mom had a genuine smile. I’m sure you have many fond memories of her Love.

    May she Rest In The Eternal Peace of Our Heavenly Father.
