    Rachel, Emma and Adam,

    I am heartbroken at Mom’s passing. Your Mom and I formed a very special relationship almost immediately when she came to Cambridge Trust. She was a very special lady and will live in my heart always.

    I send my deepest condolences to you and pray that your wonderful memories help you continue on, just as your Mom would hope.
