Dear Joyce and MaryEllen,
I was so saddened to hear of the loss of your beautiful Mom She is part of so many of my cherished childhood memories. I still use her recipe for my mashed potatoes. She was my Aunt Tina and together with Uncle Bill will always be remembered.
I am so sorry that I was not able to share with you the beautiful memories.
