So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Your mother must have been a wonderful person. She raised a wonderful daughter. Wishing you peace and comfort.

I enjoy many memories of hanging out with Uncle Pete and Aunt Esther and family, especially skiing when I was younger. They were always kind and loving to me. Aunt Esther was a beautiful lady with a tenderness about her. I will miss her. Doug

Once after they moved to Stone Haven, we went to visit while in NY. When I told her I was taking piano lessons, she immediately went through her music and gave me 2 beginner music primers. She was very supportive, a very caring lady. I am blessed we visited her when last in NY. Iris
