  1. Dick, Jimmy and Susan,

    I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I remember fondly what a kind, friendly woman she was. I didn’t realize how sick she was. I remember how we all use to hang out together as kids and go swimming and eat steamers when I was little. She was always so sweet. I will definitely keep you all in my prayers at this difficult time in your lives. I am so sorry.
    God bless you.

    Sincerely,

    Karen (Stone) Lewis
