    I’m so very sorry for your loss. Your Mom was one of the kindest & most considerate people I have ever known. She was my aunt, my Godmother and my friend. Her kindness touched so many. She spoke so lovingly of her family; her children, grandchildren and little Rowan. She was considerate of other people’s feelings & did anything to try to make their day better, whether it be a Christmas gift for the woman at the grocery store checkout or other similar places. I sure her baklava is famous throughout the Midwest. She enjoyed making it & giving it probably more than people enjoyed eating it (which is unbelievable). That was just the kind of person my Aunt Dorothy was. Her passing has left a hole in our hearts which over time I hope will heal with the warm memories of her love. I’m so sorry for your loss. Please accept our deepest sympathy and condolences.

    I saw the notice of your mother’s death in the paper today. I just had to send you my sympathies. I don’t know if you remember; but I used to babysit fir you in the late 60’s. I remember you as Sherry and Richie. We would take walks down to Dairy Queen and your two Siamese cats watched me carefully. Ha! My name was Barb Martin. I remember your mom as a truly lovely person. She was very kind and was “proper” in her manner.. I will say a prayer for you and your families. God Bkess you all. Barb
