    Cathy, Brian and familes, I am so sad to read about your mom. I have many memories of the house on Estall and years of hanging there. She was a beautiful lady. May she rest in peace With love and sympathy, Suzie Meyer

    It’s always very sad when our loved ones leave us, and most difficult is the loss of your mother. She’s the matriarch; the woman who shared and taught us to love. May all your fondest memories bring you peace during this sad time, and may her loving spirit be with you always.
