Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Linda, Lisa and Gina:
Your mother was a wonderful person. She was there for you... she also helped me get a job as a waitress at the Hamilton Club as a teenager in the 70's. You actually needed a sponsor to get a gig at the club. And your mom took me under her wings and I thrived. And she loved all of you in a special way. I won't forget her.. a great person. Adios
