Larry, I know you will miss you mother and all the things she cherished. The loss of our mothers is a part of life we cannot avoid. We pray you have many wonderful memories of your years together. I have enjoyed getting notes from your Dad occasionally--as recent as this past Christmas season.
If my memory serves me correctly, I have never paid you on a bet I lost to you!!??
With sympathy,
Bill Weinberg
