Dear Charlie, Chuck, and Mary Anne,
I was so very sorry to about your wife and mother passing away. She was always a terrific person to me and taught me many things including sharing her love of gardening. She always had a bright word for everyone and I am sure that you will miss her very much. I pray that God will help you get through this difficult time and that time will ease the pain. I am eight years down that road and the hurt does lessen but not the missing of the person at least for me. Take care all of you. Connie
