    I will always have the fondest childhood memories of Auntie Laura (as I liked to call her) when the “Hill” family would get together on Garfield Ave. in Norwood. She will be in my heart forever!!

    Your loving niece and cousin,

    To Jackie, your dad and family, I am so sorry to hear your mom passed away. I will cherish our time together during lunch and especially our “Thanksgiving” dinner.
    Your mom was a very kind and generous lady. Her talent was amazing and she was blessed with a lovely daughter, husband, and family who were so devoted to her.

    Your friend
