Our dear cousin was always very kind and generous when we were able to get to Ohio both as kids and adults. The last time she was in Richmond, shesat in a corner of the deck, overlooking both the garden and pool, enjoying her morning coffee and said, she wasn’t leaving that spot it was so peaceful. Her mother however insisted she get up and dress for lunch. We dined in that corner of which she was so fond.

Renee, I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My husband and I just drove through the old neighborhood a couple of nights ago and I was telling him who lived where, about some of our memories and had wondered where you all were these days. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

Renee and family, there is a special place in all of our hearts for our mothers, just like there’s a special place in every mother’s heart for her children. You must continue to carry her memory in that special place in your heart. I am sincerely sorry for the loss of your mother, Marge. She was another mother to me who was so important and special to me and the rest of my family. The love she shared with me for all these years will be a treasure. I am sorry for the loss of such a valuable person in our lives. My thoughts are with you and your family at this time.

Marge was such a nice person. Knew her well and her mom Mildred and Jerry at IH for years and Linda. Sympathy to Renee and her family. Always regarded Marge and Linda as people you just couldn’t help but like because they always had a smile on their face. Linda, I’m sure you have many warm memories and a day will come you will be together again. Sue Junkins
