To Nick, Carol, Theresa,& Gina. Bob and I were very sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother/Grandmom. Nick, I know she meant a lot to you. Women of your Mother's generation had to deal with hardships that you and I can never truly understand. I know it was this way with your Mother when she came to America and couldn't speak English. She was a hard worker and had a sense of honor, which she seems to have passed on to you. Your strength of character and sense of pride will help you through this sad and difficult time. May the Lord also strength you and your family. Please accept our deepest condolences for your family's loss. May her memory be eternal.
