My condolences to you all on tha passing of your Mom.  Though I did not know her I am certain she was a wonderful person because she raised such wonderful children.  Best wishes and many prayers.

I just want to send my love and prayers to Ed and family.  When you were in my class at Randolph, your family was so kind to me.  I remember being invited to your home and how gracious your mom was to me.  I had taken some sign language classes during my years at Houghton and so I was able to communicate with her a bit.  I just remember how much fun I had with your family and you continue to be a wonderful part of my early years in Randolph memories.  So sorry for your loss, but you can all be proud of how loving a family you belong to and enjoy the wonderful memories of your mom and dad.  My thoughts are with all of you today.
