Danny and family. So very sorry for your loss. It's never easy. Treasure your memories from a life well lived. I'm sure they will give you a smile and a chuckle or two.
For many years, I lived very close to the Holmes family. Margot was a beautiful mother, devoted person and an avid gardener. Much appreciation goes to Angela (my daughter Margaret's best friend and playmate) for the care she gave her mother, especially the 101 pandemic days she spent with her. My heartfelt sympathy to all.
Dan, I’m sorry you’ve lost your mom. I remember her fondly from our childhood days. My condolences and hope memories made over a lifetime will keep her spirit alive in the Holmes family. Sincerely, Cal
