  1. Susan Baluch says:

    Linda and family,

    I am saddened to hear of the passing of your mom. She was a wonderful person and aunt. I enjoyed our conversations and visits. She helped my dad through a very difficult time in his life and for that I will always be grateful.

    My prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
