Paul, Kim and Robin,

I want you to know how deeply saddened I am to hear about the loss of your mom. I visited her and Uncle Aldo at their home in Florida in 1981, and will never forget the family memories we shared during that visit. Your mom was a beautiful soul and she will be dearly missed.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Your cousin, Susan (Evans) Wagner
