    Dear Linda and Tom,

    My heart goes out to you and the family. Your mom was such a remarkable woman. I have fond memories of her, and spending time with all of you at your home as a small child. And while I know that this a very difficult time, what a blessing to have lived such a long and full life. I know she is in a better place. I like to think my dad Leonard, was there to greet his big sister with open arms. I am sorry that I’m not able to be there for the funeral, but i will be there is spirit and send my prayers and blessings to you all.
    My sincerest condolences,
    Patti Schmidt LaRosa
