Condolence & Memory Journal

Cynthia and family: hated to miss saying final farewells to your sweet vibrant mother. I was able to talk to Sylvia but just wanted to share again that I have been thinking about all of you and the sad dwindling size of our elders. I know your wonderful rich memories will replace recent sadness and loss but we will not know ladies like these in our future. They are a vanishing breed.
