  3. Dear Tammy, Jeffrey and Bryan:
    I was so sorry to hear about the death of your mom, Gilda. I am not sure I will make either day because of my schedule but I wanted you to know how much I thought of her. She was always fun to be with and I remember her and my mom, Chris (Cushin) being together and enjoying their interactions. I did visit her when she was in the nursing home a couple of times but recently not because of Covid. Anyway I wanted you to know how much she meant to me and how she will be missed. With sympathy,
    Sharon Alberts (Cushin)
