Our deepest sympathy to you, Scott, on the passing of your mom. She was a wonderful woman filled with love for you and your dad. We had known her for over 60 years and our memories abound from our times at Pt. Pleasant beach to our reunions of the RT gang. In addition we had numerous get together in each other’s homes and friends that we all had. You will be remembered for the great desserts you made and the fine get togethers at each other’s house.

Our prayers continue for you so the our Lord bless you with comfort and peace knowing she is with him, your dad, and her family. If there’s anything help you may need, don’t hesitate to call on us. You will be an honorary member of the RT gang. Love you!
