I am going to miss your wonderful kind sweet Mom.
She was always so nice to me every time I would come over to your house to play.
My deepest condolences to everyone, and sincere wishes of strength to you all on this very difficult day.
I am so glad that we got to spend time with her last year.
We got to see Esther in September while we were in New York. 🙏
Please keep in touch.
