  1. I was saddened to hear of the passing of your mother and then of your father. I have great memories of visits to my Aunt Marguerite and Uncle Sid’s home. Just a few years ago, my mother had an afternoon visit with her sister and brother-in-law. They seemed to just pick up from when they had last seen each other. The three of them had so many long ago memories that they shared and I am grateful for that time with them. Cherish your memories, too. Love, Maryann
