  3. Your Mom was a great cousin and friend to my Mom.I have many fond memories of both of you as young toddlers. I always enjoyed going to Meriden because I could play and .babysit.. I was soooo much older than both of you!!!! I guess I always wanted to be a Mom and now a grandmother. Your Mom was a great caregiver for your ailing Dad. She never complained. She was so proud of both of you and your families. She loved to share stories about anything that was going on in your lives. My last cherished memory was our visit to the beach house in Maine. Kevin and Kyle enjoyed getting to know Luc and Leigh. Memories last forever———-your Mom was a very special person. Love Sandra
