Dear Fred, I was so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. She was such a lovely lady - always elegant in dress, manners and speech. You may recall I met her when you were involved in the medical school yearbook. She was so devoted to Martin and to you, your siblings and to all family members. Please accept my sympathy. Sincerely, Jo Spencer
