Dear Shelley and Wendy and family. I am so sorry about the loss of your dear mother. She was such a special, lovely lady. When Shelley would return to Connecticut and we would go out and your mother would join us, she was so cute and sparkly. We always had such a fun time. These times were special, too, since she reminded us of all of our mothers -- you were fortunate that your mother was with you for so long.
I did not know that, despite her being such a sweet, fun lady, she was also a mighty woman -- her accomplishments are many and she was obviously a person of initiative. I will remember this about her, too, and be inspired.
Condolences and warm and loving thoughts to you all. Eileen
