    Dear Mike Maryann and Family, I hated to miss your Mom’s service. Thank goodness our daughter, Nancy could go. We all loved your Mom so much and will never forget her. We have such pleasant memories of the lady she was; so kind to us and always giving gifts to our children. I know she and my Dad did care very much for one another and was happy they kept their friendship. Also, I was so glad that Tyler and I got to have the wonderful last visit with her. It was good to see you too, Ann and Amy. I wish you would keep in touch with us. I would like your address as I no longer have it. Our email is coxhaven@sbcglobal.net. I know your family was wonderful to your Mom and she knew and felt it. Thank you for taking such good care of her. A wonderful lady, friend and we will always remember her. God Bless you all. Tom, Linda and our entire family
