    Ellen and Billy.....thinking of you and your families during this most difficult time. Your beautiful Mom is now your Angel and will always be with you, in your hearts forever. Mom's smile would like up a room, and she always made you feel so special when talking with her. XOXOXO Natalie Maga

    Ellen and Billy, we are so sorry to hear about your Mothers passing. I wondered why she hadn't replied to my last card that I sent her. I know she will be missed terribly by all that knew her. She was a great lady. May she rest in peace. Cookie & Don Melanson
