  1. Lois- so we are all ‘orphans’ together now. Losing a parent, even at our age, is significant. May your memories and family conversations be a source of comfort and joy.

  2. Your mother’s kindness, Bill, will be remembered, always. My arms are around you, and all your family, as you grieve for, reflect upon, and celebrate your mother’s life.
    With love,
    Karen (nee Regier) Healy
