    Star and Gary,

    Prayers to your families. Your Mom was a lifelong friend of my mother Angie ( Polisoto ) Ciminella. They became friends from their childhood and remained friends for life. Angie spent the last 10 years of her life in nursing homes. Betty would write letters and cards to Angie monthly to keep in touch. People stuck in nursing homes become isolated from friends and family , your Mom was an angel in her effort in maintain their friendship. Stay Healthy Bob Ciminella
