Leslie and Lori . . . there are no words that can take away the pain the loss you feel . . . time will, however, allow you to focus on the memories . . . and remember all those moments of spending time with your mom.

I will surely miss our hour of talk on the phone, our coffee gatherings and our ability to solve the problems surrounding us ( at least we always thought we did). She was a very dear and good friend, but will always be in my heart . She loved you very much and those” four little ones” as she refer to them as, she said no ever how big they get, they are my “little ones” My, how we discussed our kids!! We spent Tuesday A.M. with her and as I told you, she finally made me believe she was happy, you did the best thing for her..xoxo and kisses to all of you and RIP, my good friend Carol.
