“Your mother, Edna, was a very special person who always had that positive outlook on life. Skills and adventures she taught me as a young child, I've passed on to my children. And they pass to my grandchildren.In observing that I appreciate what she did for me years ago. So sorry I can not be there at this time. There is no valid excuse. I am just very sorry Jean and I can't be there on Friday. Tom Macejko ”
