Dear Eddie, we were all so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She was such a lovely lady. Both my boys remember her from their birthday parties when they were small and the Christmas parties we used to have it my house. She was a kind loving and friendly person. We feel grateful that she was a part of our lives. You are in our prayers. I pray God will give you the strength to endure this loss

Dear Ed,
It was an honour to meet and spend time with Angela. Although it was only for a few weeks, she made a great impression upon me, as did you; also your remarkable family, who I met at her bedside. Angela always beamed when I mentioned your name, those of your cousins and Rita, her all but daughter. I'm sorry not to attend Angela's wake, due to a prior commitment. I do trust your many wonderful memories will serve to ease the pain of loss. Please know my thoughts are with you and yours at this difficult time. Sincerely, Deborah

I send my sympathies to Angela's family. When I was an electrical design engineer for Hewlett-Packard (and then Agilent Technologies) Angela did a number of printed circuit layout jobs for me. She was a quiet, patient, and very conscientious designer. There were times I gave her parts placement and/or special ground-plane needs that required dense trace routing to make all the necessary connections; she just did it, and didn't give me a hard time the way a couple of the other designers sometimes did. I really appreciated her cooperative spirit, and sincerely hope she had enjoyable retirement years!
