Even though the miles kept us apart from Aunt Margaret over the years, I remember her as a kind, loving aunt all the times we were around her. I know she was a good sister to our dad and they cared a lot about each other. That is how we will always remember her. Jimmy and Brian – we are thinking of you both during this difficult time.
Dear Jimmy and Brian,
I was so very sorry and saddened to learn of your mom’s death. My grandmother Doan was such good friends with your mother. I have very happy memories of your mother who I saw, as well as your father, during my family’s summer visits to Steuben (Mason Doan was my father).
I send you my deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom.
