    Sheryl, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    My heart goes out to Sheryl and her family. The loss of a parent/grand-parent is truly a hard thing to handle. Just remember there are people out here you can always count on if you need them. Sincerely, Michelle

    Sheryl and family, you have our deepest sympathy. As you know, I have loved your mom since I met her almost 60 years ago when I transferred to Riverside High School. What a special, special friend she has always been. I am having a hard time accepting the fact we won’t be talking over old times on the phone and laughing ourselves silly. She was the best friend I ever had and I will miss her until the day I die. You should know that nobody was more proud of their grandsons that Elaine was of John and Nick. I pray that your memories of laughter and good times will help sustain you through this painful period and bring smiles to your faces when you reminisce in the years ahead. Love to you all, Marilyn and Will
