I just wanted to let you know how many memories I have from when you guys used to come visit for the holidays, clambakes we all shared, and we went to your home on many weekends. Your Mom was the role model that I kept in mind when I raised my son. She was so very loving and caring and I never, ever saw her get upset with any of her kids. Rather, she handled difficult situations with love and hugs and kind words. She raised a wonderful family. Please hold on to that as one of your memories of your Mom.
