I want to express my sincere condolences on the loss of your mother. I knew her through your dad, with whom I worked for many years. I think about your dad often, a man who truly was a great boss and later, became a great friend. You had wonderful parents. Your mom was such a sweet lady and I will always remember her fondly. Sincerely, Joe Verespey
