David and Family - Please accept my sympathy at the passing of your mother. You may not know it, but I knew your mother before I ever met your cousin Shirley. When I was at Quincy College, I would sometimes stop into the IGA and your sweet mother would often give this poor college student a free cookie. I always had a sweet spot in my heart for her kindness and friendliness. I won't be with you tomorrow but want you to know that she is in my thoughts and prayers as she enters rest eternal. Peace to you all. Jay

Dear David and Family - you may not know it, but I knew your mother before I met your cousin Shirley. When I was at Quincy College, I often shopped at the IGA and if your mother was behind the bakery counter, she would often pass this poor college student a free cookie. Her friendliness and kindness earned her a sweet spot in my heart. I will not be with you today but you are all much in my thoughts and prayers. She has earned her eternal rest. Peace to you all, Jay
