Dear Mom, Even though we lived many miles apart we kept you close in our hearts. In our younger years it was so nice spending the holidays together laughing and enjoying each other's company. We kept strong through our losses and will continue to stay strong. Good bye mom may you rest in peace with dad and brother Mike. .
