  1. Rob, Al, Sig, and families,
    I was saddened to hear of this announcement. Although I hadn’t seen your mom in years I have some fond memories of the times we spent together. She had her moments! My parents would always let me know when they had run into her and how she was.
    May she rest in peace.

  2. Jim &Gina and families
