  3. Gary Stang condolence:

    Louise, Bill & Rita: i’m sorry about the loss of your well loved mother. Despite it’s inevitably and her failing health I know the finality still comes with much grief and sorrow. I’ll be forever grateful for the way she welcomed me into your home like family so many times during our teenage years. I could just stop by unannounced and usually find her in the kitchen warmly telling me to “come on in”. Sunday’s were the best when pasta was on the stove all day. I was well fed and she was always insisting that I “have some more”. I usually did. Great lady. I’ll always remember her very fondly.
