Dear Cindy (and Ann), It was a privilege to have worked with your mother, Cindy. and aunt, Ann. . There are few like her. And, of course, Joe and your parents, Ann, fit the same mold. We wish you the best as you let the wonderful memories of beautiful parents relieve your sympathy at this time. Best wishes, Richard and Fern Heitholt
