Dear Michelle (& Siblings), Ryan, Mitch & Nick,
We were sorry to arrive home to the news of Marilyn's passing...but we know it's been a difficult road for you all for a number of years, and now there is peace. It was a pleasure to know your Mom/Mimi, and she has been missed lately at our family gatherings. We're sure your good memories of your mother/Mimi, and of your father/Papa, will now begin to outweigh the difficulties that have come with age. Thinking of you all...Jerry/Dad/Papa and Linda
