My sincere sympathy to all of you. Your mom and her sister came to my mom's service and at graveside we discovered that my parents are next to your mom's father. Your mom said she would check on my parents for me. Later her and her sister had a memorial service for my mom at the church in Queensbury. Your mom and Shirley were so thoughtful and it meant a lot to me.
