Our hearts are broken, you left us all way to soon. I still can hear that saying"Hey guys what ya doing" as you sip on that ice coffee. we were together for almost 64 years, long time but yet seems so short. I miss the daily phone call and text checking on everyone is, how Ma is. You were the brightest light in our family with your smile and laughter. I hope you are a guardian angel watching over all of us especially Emily, Logan, Abe,Nicole and Johnny and your lunch buddy Ma!
Love always , John and Nancy

So very sorry for your loss Jim. We had many great times and lots of laughs during the 7 and 1/2 years I worked with her at University orthopedics. I will never forget our trip to Salem when we dressed up as witches and everyone was taking pictures of us. She will be sadly missed by so many friends. My deepest heartfelt sympathy to your whole family
