    Dear Abbie and family, I was sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I remember the beautiful, redhead who always welcomed me with a smile and who was always so gracious. Childhood memories are priceless… I also remember babysitting for Melissa! Know that my thought and prayers are with you all, your childhood friend… Annette (Markarian)
