    My sympathies on your loss. I know the last few years have been difficult for you and your family. You cared for your mother so well and treated her with dignity and grace.

    Sending my prayers and sympathy for your loss. May Evelyn rest in peace now and join Ralph in heaven. They were the best neighbors to me on Lake Street. Such special memories I will always cherish.
