    My sympathy goes out to your family. I lived nearby in the neighborhood off 38th Street for the first two decades of my life. I fondly remember the Drelicharz kids and their parents–Mary Ann and Frank..

    Diane, Tom, Gregg and families. Please know that I am thinking of you all. I adored your beautiful Mom. With all the times we shared at various events I can’t help but smile when thinking of all the fun times and laughs we shared. I can envision her and your Dad playing golf again together up in Heaven!

    Sending my love to you all.
