Dave, Bob, Betsy and Dick, I am so sorry to hear about the death of your mom yet realize that you were so lucky to have her live into her 90's. I remember the good times at your home in Westborough and also in NewHampshire where I got to drive your speedboat. Also I remember the fun we all used to have square-dancing. I have many fond memories of your family.

I hope that all of the wonderful memories that you have of your mom will help comfort you during this difficult time.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hugs, 'Moe' xo
