  • Tom,

    My deepest sympathy to you and the boys for your loss.
    She was a great lady, have many good memories of stopping in to see you and her, always feeling welcome. I always remember you telling me she was the one who suggested that you ask me to play in the Pro-Am that year in your place. Its an experience that I will never forget, and it was because of her.
