    Dear Tom, Chris, Maureen, Midge and Pat,
    We are so sorry to miss being with you and celebrating Ann’s life today. We were fortunate enough to get to know Ann, and we have affectionate memories of her and her wonderful sense of humor, her wit, and hearing her stories. We hope you are keeping a dictionary of her clever expressions and sayings–most of which we had never heard before.
    We are thinking of you especially today and hope your memories of your wonderful mom will sustain you.
    With love, Pam and Amelia
