Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • My Mom, Vi, and Mary worked together at Warkov’s and remained friends for years. Mary came to visit my Mom before she passed last year and at Mom’s funeral Mary told us that she was losing her battle with cancer and would be with Mom soon. Her comments brought me peace at a difficult time. I’m sure they’re spending time together having some laughs. Deepest condolences to Ben and family and friends. I’m so sorry for your loss.
