  1. Dear Ted, John and Claudia,
    So very sorry about the loss of your dear mom. She was a wonderful person, compassionate, kind, classy, and a true joy to be around. I just spoke with her on the phone last month and planned to visit with her again this summer when I came to Connecticut. I will miss seeing her and speaking with her. She has been a constant in my life – always the devoted Godmother ever since my christening 57 years ago. She often spoke of my own mother (Dona Renzulli) and their good times together. I now imagine them sitting, laughing and enjoying each other’s company once again. Please accept my condolences and heartfelt thanks for sharing your sweet mom with me for so many years.
    Kind regards, Valerie
