Susan and family,
So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. She was such a sweet lady. Not sure you would remember me, my dad (bob scully) went to cardiac rehab with your mom. How great that she lived to be 100. God bless her. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Mrs L,
You have been a part of my life for at least 49 of your 100 years, and it meant a lot to me. I know your family is missing you something ferious, but're with your husband, your son, and your son-in-law again, doing everything you used to do. I can't be sad about that, but I've started missing you already.

To Sue and the family, my sincere thoughts, condolences and prayers. We lost a great lady.
