Paul and Kenny. This may be the second time you get this. If so, forgive me. But I wanted to tell you how very sorry I was to read of your Mom's passing. I remember what good friends and next door neighbors they were to my parents at good old #11 Pearson. I am now living at # 11, having lost both my parents also. I know how your Mom missed Paul and now they are together again. Prayers from my family to yours. God bless. Pat (Moore) Rettig
