Dear Brad, I'm so so saddened to read of your dear mother's passing. We reconnected in recent years and use to meet at Friendly's at Latana Sq. I'm in shock. I can't tell you how deeply sorry I am for your lose. She loved you and your beautiful so much. Please let me know if there is anything I can do. Also if you could let me know if Kathy was sick and kept it to herself. Your parents were in my wedding in 1972. I loved them dearly. You and your precious children will be in my thoughts and prayers. Tina Jetnigan 484-753-3750
