Brad and John, your mother was a wonderful neighbor, from the day we moved in 16 years ago. We’re so sorry for your loss. My family and I will miss her very much, and I know many others on Erin Avenue will miss her as well. Please let me know if there’s anything I can do to help. Lynn Schlesinger, 16 Erin
