Dear Beth, Vicki, Lisa, John, and family,
Our condolences to you on your mother’s passing after her brave battle with ALS. We like to recall Becky in her happier days with Lee and you children when you were all youngsters. A visit to Inner Harbor with your parents and John is a special memory for us as well as visits to Lee and Becky’s home in Salisbury Heights for some good meals, conversations, and even swimming in the new backyard pool. May you all treasure those happy times.
Jay and Susen Leary
