Ron-
So sorry to hear about your mother. We had a Housing Bd. Meeting on 9/30 and despite how tired she was, she managed to show up for a little while. She certainly was a fine woman and will be greatly missed.

Gram,
I will miss you so much. You have always been someone I have admired. You were such a strong woman and I admired that about you. I wish I got to hear so many more of the stories that you had to tell but the ones you did get to will forever be with me. I love you and fly high with the angels. Tell gram Thibault, uncle John and uncle Ron I love and miss them too.
