Angela, Phillip and your families, I was saddened to hear of the loss of your mother. Aunt Maureen and Uncle Ralph were very kind and generous to our whole family when we would visit as children. She was a rock of support for my Mom, Greta, throughout her life. Her kind heart was always appreciated by our family here in Michigan. You have our sincere sympathies from my wife Anne and I.
