    To Dawn, Lola, Nolan and all the family.
    Sorry to hear of your mom’s passing but she is at rest now. I was very happy to have met her at the reunion in 1994. She was full of life (certainly reminded me of the Plessis clan) and exuberance. I am sure we will all treasure the fond memories we have of her.
    Take care and hope to see you all at some point.
    Your cousin
    Rose and Bob
