Dear Robert, I just read the notice in the Coast Star about your mother's passing. I'm sorry to hear it. I didn't know her very well but well enough to know she was such a nice lady! And she raised a such a nice family - you and your brothers and sister. I remember coming to your house around Christmas time, seeing all the decorations and lights. I remember being invited for dinner once. I think it was just because you told me I should definitely check out the Christmas lights and since it was late enough in the day for them to be on, well, I got invited for dinner!
I'm sure it was hard for you and your family to be without her this past Christmas; but I trust she gave you enough love and courage to carry on.
You and your family are in my prayers.
