To Mike, Sherry and the Family: I just learned of the passing of your Mother. I remember her growing up from the Shell station your dad and she owned on the Highlands Road. She was always very kind to my brother Ronnie, me and the rest of my family. My condolences and prayers for you all in your time of sorrow.
