Judy & Kathy - just wanted you to know how much I thought of your Mom. She was a great help to my Mom when she was getting older... I would imagine there are not too many left from the "old guard" on Butler Street but the memories are good ones & will be there forever... Will have a mass said for her once the churches open up again.. Stay healthy,
Rich & Judy Fletcher
