RE: G-d bless your dear sweet precious mother
Hi Buddy,

Thank you for the message on my mothers memorial. There are many people who knew my mom who I have either lost touch with or simply cannot remember. I haven't checked up on this site for many years, sorry I didn't respond sooner... I updated my old email address in case you or anyone else who knew my mother Jennie ever wish to reply?

Happy Veterans Day!
And thank you for directing me to Willy's grave. It's very touching. Was Willy a gay rights activist?
