Please accept our condolences. We remember your Mom as a very kind and thoughtful neighbor. Although it was 40 years ago, she made an impression. How lovely that you asked for random acts of kindness in her memory.

So very sorry for your loss. Dot and me went to High School together and graduated in the same class. We spent many a day together when we were young. She was a very lovely girl.

So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I remember when I was at home the visits your mom and dad made to our home. We had a lot of laughs and good memories were made often. Memories are the legacy of love. You are all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
