"Dear Diane and Stephen,
I was so very sorry to hear of your mother?s passing. I have such wonderful memories of your mom. Mrs Marshall inspired me to pursue education as my career as my beloved second grade teacher. And then how blessed was I, that she was also my professor in college. I loved getting to know both of you when babysitting. I remember your mom as patient, kind, thoughtful and wise. I treasure my memories of not only your mom but your family.
Unfortunately, I can?t be with you on Monday but please know you are both in my thoughts and prayers as you live your new normal without your mom. May your many memories comfort you.
In love and sympathy
Irene O?Connor Maunz"
