    Dear Kathy and family,
    I am so sorry about your loss of your mom and also about my loss of a cousin. I liked Ileen so much and admired her many wonderful qualities. She seemed very happy and content when I spoke with her on the phone recently. She aged so gracefully. You were blessed to have a great woman as a mother. I pray God’s many comforting graces go out to you all.
