So saddened to hear this news. I will always think of my childhood and life on Hutchinson Drive when I think of Joe & Evelyn, Joey & Karen Sue. Seemed like we moved there together and grew up together. I have such great memories of your Mom. She was always kind, funny and beautiful to boot. Here’s to the old days and lasting memories.
