Patti, Kathleen, Maureen and all,
We are so sorry for your loss. There was no one like your mom. I'll always remember the laughter she brought and the fun she and Norma had together. I'm sure they're already in cahoots with the rest of the gang and happy to be together again.
Sincere condolences.
Patty and Brian Clifford
