To Jeanne,
When we first met I saw what a wonderful, warm, kind, beautiful person you were. You would always say "Hello Theresa, how are you?" Eyes bright, smile so warm, you never minded my hearing loss . We still had our chats. You put a smile in my heart. Thanks for choosing me to take care of Michael, your son. When I lost my mother, my friend it was such a great loss to me. Then I found you, my mother. Someone told me when you feel sad, scared, lonely or perhaps lost reach out and hug a family member. Sister, brother, daughter...she is in each one of them.
That is the greatest gift you has given.

I haven't seen Mrs Eyer in a long time But remember her well as long time neighbor of my parents on Baltimore St. I remember very well the wonderful wedding gift she gave my wife and I in 1977 when we got married. A deviled egg serving tray that we still use quite frequently 42 years later
