I was so very sad to hear of your Mothers passing Claudia. You were such a great child to her, always there, always taking care of her needs. She was a great lady and will be missed.

Dear Blowers family,
Growing up with all of you, remembering the old times brings a smile and a tear for your loss. Although we didn't keep in touch over the years, please know I do remember and I wish there was something I could say or do to ease the pain. Please feel free to contact me. I live in Arizona but do come back to NY to visit my sons grave.
