  1. Annmarie, Happy memories of my husband and I celebrating our anniversaires with your parents, opening greeting cards and always finding a hankerchief and, to this day, carrying an angel pin in my purse that your mom gave to me long before this item became popular. Whenever I think of your mom, there will be a smile on my face, my hearfelt thoughts to all of you on your loss Phylis K. Chait

  2. Cathie and Ann Marie:

    We are all so sorry for the loss of your Mom. We enjoyed her company when she would come to Syracuse. It is very hard when a parent dies. Our thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.
