Dear Family,

We are extremely sorry to learn about the passing of your Mother. We are currently in Atlanta visiting our daughter and will be unable to make a personal visit. I read the obituary on line.

As a young boy Jerry growing up in the same neighborhood, I have very fond memories of your mother. I’ll bet you didn’t know she helped me get my driver’s license at age 16; training me on what I remember was a big Pontiac. I am sure she also helped with the go-cart running up and down the alley.

We are very sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for the loss of “Mrs. B.” I will never forget her humor – or her pierogies!
