    Dear Janie and Family, I am so sorry to hear of your loss and send my sincere sympathy to you. Janie, I can't tell you how many times that I have thought about you and wished to have contact with you. Recently I ran into Cathy Schuyler and we talked of you and remembered your mother. Often times patients ask about you and I so wish I had information to share with them. I also recently talked with Laura(my significant other has gone to her for years for his hair cuts), so you have been on my mind so much lately and are especially now with your mom's passing. Sending my thoughts and condolence to you. Please contact me so we can catch up with one another. I miss you! With fondest memories, Debbie

    Perry, Linda, Carole and Jane: Please accept my sincere sympathy and deepest condolences for the loss of your Mother, Irene. I remember her well and fondly, she used to talk cake decorating with my Mother, Helen Edwards, and of course, attended many of our Babe Ruth baseball games. She is also the only woman I know who hit Dizzy Dean with her purse! What a great story. My Dad has been gone since 2003, my Mother is doing well and will be 89 in February. Losing our parents is the hardest part of our getting older. Eric L. Edwards
