    Tom, Sandy, Adam & Rhonda: I send my sympathy to you & all of the family. I don’t know the younger family members, but I know you older kids remember me. I always enjoyed your Mom when we’d gather for Telephone Co. events, many yrs. ago. May she be at peace & out of pain now. Remember the good times you shared together. Hugs, Chris Antoff
