Dear Greg, Michael and Family,

Your Mom was one of the kindest, sweetest woman I have ever meet, and that was before I tasted her cookies.
Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss. She will be truly missed by all who knew her. She lives on in everyone’s hearts and memories of her. A mother’s love is always within our hearts.
