Tom, Michael, and Molly, your mother and grandma was a wonderful lady. I have many fond memories of times we spent together many years ago. And Molly, your mom had us for a lovely homemade lunch in her first apartment in Newport. Another wonderful woman. My prayers and sympathy go to all of you! Sincerely, Eunice
