Mickey, Kathy, & Frank – I am so sorry to here about your loss. We all remember your Mom fondly and the fun times we had together on Virginia. Our houses were so close together, we all played together, went to school together and our mom’s visited every day, so that it almost felt like we were all one family. I remember her laugh, and how she and your dad loved to square dance. I know it has been hard losing your dad and David, too. Just like the only time I cried at my Dad’s funeral was when I saw you, know that I still feel that close to all of you in my heart like we have always been “one family”. Love and Prayers, Connie, Bob, Eileen, & Betty
Mickey, Kathy, Frank and the entire family of Helen’s we send our love. We always enjoyed talking with Helen but had lost contact the past couple of years. No one is ever ready to say good-by to their mother. Our sympathy goes out to all of you. Sincerely, Ted and Linda DeFeo
