    Cathy and Andy,

    Thomas and I were deeply saddened by the news of your mother’s passing. I loved your mother dearly. We had so much fun together and I have so many wonderful memories. We didn’t stay in touch much after I moved to Paris but I think of her everytime I try something new.

    Her actions were always kind and generous. She was a wonderful friend … a true gife in my life.

      Thanks Dianna, Mama always loved you too. She had so much fun doing crafts and exploring with you. I especially loved the audio tape you two made for the book club a few years ago. It is especially priceless now.
