David, Karen and families,
Sending you hugs and sympathy in the loss of your Mom. It was over 50 years ago that I met her when she moved into the neighborhood on Greenlawn Ave, in Warwick. I always enjoyed meeting up with her these past couple of summers as we would run into each other at the summer concerts. May she Rest In Peace
