  7. Georgiana and Family, I am so sorry to hear about your Mother. I adored her and my kids grew to love her. They met her when my Mother, Dorothy , would take them to the movies. My Mother, sister, Diane and I had such a good time time when we were with her and your aunt. My Mother was I’ll in 2010 and said Donna came to see her but I thought she was just confused, she wasn’t. When she was visiting John she stopped to see Mom. Such a wonderful visit for Mom as she was passing. Your Mother was a great lady and will be missed. You are in my prayers.

I will never forget our trips we’ve taken together to Sea World, Niagra Falls and many days working at the Drive In and Plaza Theatre. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Take care and God Bless.
