    Dear Joe,
    Mark and I are very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was such a wonderful woman who seemed to have a permanent smile on her face, one that you could only return with a smile. I’ll always remember dropping in on her at EZ Way or at your house after school. Please know, Joe, that she will be missed.
    Sincerely and in friendship,

  14. What a tremendously sad day for the family. Auntie Barbara was, quite simply, the best. What a kind, gentle, caring, happy soul. She was always smiling and wanting to know how all of us were doing. She will be forever loved and missed. My condolences to her kids. We were all so very lucky to have her as long as we did. RIP Auntie. I love you.
