So sorry to learn of Mrs. Casey’s passing. The hospitality that your entire family showed when Geo. Jr.’s roommates visited from LVC was greatly appreciated, especially those dinners. I hope you all are doing well and will continue to do so, with the spirit and caring your Mom showed everyday.

My heart breaks for your family when I read the newspaper this morning. I know how difficult a mom’s death can be and your mom was extra special. I still have the wedding invitation she made for our wedding and will always appreciate her help during that time with flowers on the table. She just loved bringing joy to others. There will be a lot less love in this world without her. My sympathy to everyone.
