“Very sad to hear that your mom had passed. She always treated me like a son the many, many times I stayed over the house as a young kid to terrorize the neighborhood with Stevie! Many memories came rushing back when I was at the viewing at the church this morning, all of them good. I know you all will miss her and you have my deepest sympathies. ”
