Dear Tony and family….
My condolences on the loss of your wife and mother, Mary Ann.  You were all so kind
and good to me in the days when I especially needed that.  Speaking for myself, I say
that when Mary Ann was around I felt nothing but kindness and gentleness from her.

To Nancy and family,
We are thinking of all of you during this difficult time.  Your mom was a sincere and caring person.  She was always interested in how “everyone” was doing in our family.  I never saw her without her wonderful smile and hearing her kind words.
Peace, love and memories,
