  1. Dear Mark and Family,
    We lived next door to you and your parents for twenty years. We went to visit them in Redding when your Father was still alive. We received a Christmas card until just a couple of years ago. I called your Mother every now and then, and we both remember her as a extremely pleasant woman.
    We send you our sincerest sympathies, and must confess her age surprised us!
    Pat and Joe Santelle
