Dear Robert and Janet,
So glad my husband John and I made time to visit your Mother in December 2021. She was her funny self as always. We met at Strawbridge and Clothier back in 1977 when we worked together in the sportswear department. When she was well John and I would come up to take her to lunch. I will miss her smiling face. I know she had not been feeling well after having covid. It was a pleasure to know both of your parents. I know her loss is great and I pray the memories of her smiling face will be with you always.
