Mary Ann, Claire, and Joann,

I was sorry to hear of your mother's passing. What a blessing to have her for so long. I remember her, your dad, and Aunt Marie so well. I still use your mother's lasagne recipe. I'm always disappointed if I order it out, never as good as hers. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. It's so hard to let go of our Moms.
