    My deepest condolences for the loss of your Mother. Whenever we go to Mom and Dad's we stop by and knock on their door to see if they need anything. Had been worried lately and I found your Mother's obituary this afternoon. We wish we had known and would have paid our respects. We couldn't have had more generous, caring and thoughtful neighbors and I really cherish so many good memories of our times with all of you and the thoughtfulness of your parents as our aged and became ill. Thank you so much for so many things. Kate, Scott and Jon Young
