    Dear Sam, Charlie, Sid and Jerry and families, We are so saddened by this sudden loss of such a wonderful woman. When I think of happy memories as a kid, so many of them happened when you all came to visit us. I also loved getting to stop by and spend time with you on my way to and from college. My heart aches for you all. Sending you love and hugs and prayers.
