Please accept my sincere sympathy for the passing of your mother, Josephine. She and your father Bill were very dear friends to my parents, Earl and Louise Saxton. I remember your mother as a sweet, kind and loving woman who always had a warm smile. Your parents, the DeLuca's, and my parents spent many fun times together especially at the DeCaires home. May God in His Goodness give you strength and comfort in the days ahead.
