Dear Randy,
Mary O. told me of your mother's passing on Monday. I just really wanted you to know that I am thinking about you at this sad time. I didn't want to put anyone on the spot by asking for your address or e-mail , so I am sending you my sincerest sympathy this way.   I hope you are happy and well.
 Love, Con

Sorry for your loss. 
Zelda was a great lady and good friend to my aunt, 
Helen Sheaffer.
She will be missed.

Kathy Dietz

Randy, you might not remember me...Linda Martin from CHS.  We talked WAY back when I worked at Howard Johnson's Motor Lodge on the pike and you would come in to make reservations with a confirmation.  Anyway...just wanted to send my sympathies to you and your family.

94 years...WOW!  You are very lucky to have had your mother all of those years.  My mother died when I turned 50.

God bless.
Linda (Martin) Meck
