  1. Dear Tom,

    My heartfelt condolences to you and your family in the loss of your mother. Although it’s been a while since we’ve been in touch, I remember you fondly and hope you are well. I also remember your mom and dad with a smile. They were lovely people.
    Shortly before my mother died, she looked up at me and said, ‘You will always have a mother.’ I have found those words very comforting since her passing. Perhaps they will comfort you, also.

    Warmly,
    Jill

  2. Dear Tommy & Jean,
    I remember your Mom and Dad with such clarity and with such fondness, though so many years have passed. I sense it must be good fortune for me to think of them so. They expressed, always, such kindness and care for you and your friends. Together they made a home where all of us were welcomed and where you were celebrated. I know they must have loved you very much. I miss the thought of them–alive and well and planning for the future–though I cherish the memories I have of them still, and of you.

    My sympathies…

  5. Jean and Family –
    I was deeply sadden to to learn of the passing of your Mom. I will miss your visists to Edna Tina and miss having you bring your Mom up to see me. I enjoyed all Mom’s visits up to the front desk every night as she waited for you to come and visit. I still have your phone number etched in my head from all the phone calls your Mom had me make to your home to see when you would be coming to visit. Take Care!!

  6. My sincere sympathy to Dorothys’ family. Dorothy was a dear sweet woman and friend of my long since deceased first wife Dorothy Dintruff Gutzmer.

  7. Tom and Jean,

    Your mother was such a gracious woman. I’m so sorry for your loss. Your home was always a welcoming one for me. The family parties were quite an experience for someone from a small family like mine! I remember those days fondly. I’ll be thinking about you in the coming days.
