    Judy, Kay, and Marvin, I'm so sorry to learn of your dear mother's passing. I have many fond memories of her and spending time with your family. Both she and your dad were so kind and fun to be with. I always felt so welcomed at your home. She certainly lived a long, good life. You were blessed to have her for such a long time. You are in my prayers and thoughts. Would love to see you. God bless all of you. Jane
