    I was sorry to hear of your mother’s having passed last evening. I had just gotten a promise from Mom that she would allow me to take her to see her when I visit later this month. She is 87 now, using a walker all of the time. I remember how much your mother came to resemble your grandmother in appearance as the years passed, as mine does her mother. We would have sent flowers if we had known. Your parents were lovely people. Now, they are two of the new stars in the night sky. May peace and love surround you and yours always. Louise’s child, Mary Belle
