Dearest Pam, Debbie, Leslee and Michele,

My Mom and I were together Monday night and we were recalling the by-gone days on Dean Drive. You and your Mom and Dad were absolutely part of that conversation. Your Mother must have really been on my mind over the past week. I will always remember how your parents helped me out as a new bride and mother. It seems only yesterday that they so generously pitched in with advice and support. Of course, you all provided wonderful babysitting. I remember when “Red” passed and now it is difficult to fathom that your Mom has gone to join him. You have all been in my thoughts and prayers this week. I will share this sad news with Theresa and Dona. They, too, often have those little childhood memories of your kindness to them. May cherished love and fond memories be with you in your Mother’s physical absence. Sue Ainsley Rice
