  1. Hi Lori.

    It’s been a LONG time. I’m so sorry to hear of your dad’s passing and also learn that your mother had also passed. My mom died in March, 2013. It doesn’t matter how old you are, losing your parents is just heart-wrenching, so please accept my sympathies.

    All the best to you,
    Joanie

  2. I am your father cousin (Gail Cooper) Aunt Gertrude was my father’s sister (George Cooper).

    I remember your father well, also Aunt Gertrude and Uncle Jeff. What fond memories I have of them on visits to New Jersey.

    I was researching on the internet and came across this notice and wanted to let you know I read it with sorrow.

    I’m sorry for the loss of Leroy and your mother Charlotte. What a wonderful family.
