    To th Alice Skipper Family, my condolences in the passing of your mother most recently. I had stopped at Edgewood and most often stop in to visit with her. She always lit up when I would come to visit. The last time I was at Edgewood she was sound asleep so I decided not to wake her that was just before the lockdown. I always enjoyed visiting with your mother and sharing some coffee with her.Take care and God bless. Marianne Nanti
