  1. To Steven, Lynne & family….I loved your mom so much and I have so many happy memories of holidays spent with your family. When I last saw her she was still well enough that we had a 3 hour visit and she told me stories about how she and Pete met and courted and I know how much she loved and missed him. She also talked about how you all were so caring and that she would receive a phone call every night from you.Also she spoke of how proud she was of her grandchildren. Even though I did’t get to see her very often she was very special to me. We all were very blessed to have her in our lives and I will miss her very much. Love to you all and God Bless.
