Jimmy and Kerry,
I was shocked to hear of your mother’s loss after speaking to your dad today. I had not seen your mother in decades but I always remembered her as being witty with a great sense of humor, kind and a very loving mother to you both. May God bless you and her family and may her memory be eternal. Take care and stay safe, John Stefanou & family
