    I wanted to send my sympathies to the family in the passing of your dear mother. I have fond memories of time spent at your house back in the day. Your mom was alway so hospitable and kind. My mother is not in good health. I told her about Neva’s passing and there were tears. I said, “mom why are you crying?” She said, “she was my friend”. Hugs and love to all of you from the entire Clossin clan.
