Dear Kathryn and Lawrence,
I’m your Dad’s first cousin and have not seen Mom since Larry the second’s funeral. Your Grandfather was my god-father. Mom and I tried to get together years ago and failed to connect. I’m sorry for you both. Mom was a charming person. Your parents and my husband and I enjoyed a few laughs when Kathryn and my daughter Maureen were going to Maria College.
It is always sad to realize we let time fly without keeping in touch. My deepest sympathy is with you. I will keep you in my prayers.
A close friend in the Albany area sent me the obituary of Margaret’s
passing and I send heartfelt condolences.
Our families we close in proximity but unfortunately our paths never met.
With Kind Regards,
Andrea Ehrhardt of Naples, Florida granddaughter of Charles Ehrhardt, brother of Lawrence Ehrhardt
