Dear Leonette,
I was very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was always so sweet & kind when she gave us rides to Dunn's Pond to ice skate & to CYC dances when we were young. You are in my thoughts & prayers.

Dear Leonette, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom! I loved her so much! I have great memories visiting with her for hours when we were neighbors on Parker St. She always did a great job hemming my clothes, too. Praying for you! Miss you too! Hugs Lisa
