Send Condolence

    Dearest Tracey, I am so deeply grieved over the loss of your mom. We had recently had occasion to talk and reconnect as we had not had for many years. She was a dear, big-hearted, generous, and forthright woman. I am very touched by all of the recent kindnesses you and your mom showed to my mother. I am so sorry you lost such a dear friend.

     Much love, Kathy Evans
