Michael and Billy,

I was so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I have such fond memories of her making candy, or standing by "Traurig rock" as we walked our dogs, sitting in your front yard on beach chairs, or just running through your sun room into your kitchen where your mother was sure to be after playing wiffle ball in your yard. She was a good and strong woman who raised two good and strong sons and I will cherish the memories of her and your father. I can almost smell your dad's pipe tobacco thinking of him in your den. Thoughts are with you and your families.
