    Our thoughts are with you during this time of loss. We’ll treasure the memories of Aunt Ginny and Uncle John and the place they hold in our hearts. It seems like yesterday we’d visit with them in their home on South Mercer Street as kids. I’ll always remember the kindness and warmth she exuded in everything she did.

    Dear Suzie and family,
    Your mother and I have stayed in touch ever since she left Baltimore. It was always such a comfort to me just to know that she was there. She was on my mind this morning and I just googled her name. What sadness I am feeling seeing her obituary. I so enjoyed seeing all those wonderful pictures of her over the years. They filled in the gap of time and it was like I had a visit with her. I will miss her dearly. I know that she is with the Father and your Dad and is finally at peace. I know I will see her again, probably sooner than later. She was a blessing to me all these years. If I close my eyes I can hear her laugh. My prayers are with you and her family. God be with you.
