Nunzie and Sam so sad to hear of your Mom’s passing. She lived a beautiful life and loved you both and you Dad. I will always remember the good times I had when visiting your parents. They always made you feel welcome. May she Rest In Peace as she is with your Dad. In sympathy Linda(will) and Don Patterson
