    To all of you, basically my second family, my thoughts are with you. As you know, I adored your parents and remember fondly sitting around the kitchen table with Pat and your mom on Cleveland Road having many, many conversations about life, etc., etc. I know she will be missed by all of you and am very, very sorry for her passing.

    My deepest sympathy to all who were lucky enough to have such a woman in your lives. I didn’t see your parents but once a year but I did treasure that time I was able to speak with your Mom and Dad in the past – some great stories. My thoughts are with you. Sincerely, Chris Anderson
