  3. Tom, Sylvia, Elaine and Patrick,

    I would like to express my sincere sympathy. The loss of your mother Laura must be devastating for all of you. I remember her as a calm, loving, beautiful woman and it was obvious how much she loved all of you. I can still see her sunning herself in the backyard on Birch St. and I will never forget her distinct little laugh. The world will be a different place without her.

    My Best Wishes for all of you – April
