Jerry and Janis, please accept my condolences on the passing of your mom. I have fond memories of visiting on Christmas Eve and having the gourmet meals she had prepared. As years passed and I hosted others in my own home, I came to appreciate how much work she had done and how generous she was with her time.

Janis I just found out today about your mom from my brother Tony. I'm so sorry for your loss. She was a great woman and I'll always remember her with that beautiful smile and how she always made me feel so welcomed whenever I was around her. God bless you and Jerry on getting through your loss especially at the holidays. Love Eileen
