    I have fond memories of her in the 1960’s when Pam and I were great friends! She will be so missed. My prayers are with you and your brother!

    Dear Ted, I am so sorry for your loss, especially when it comes so soon after Leslie’s mother’s death in March. Remember the good times and memories. We were both lucky to have our moms with us for so many years.
    Peace, Rita
