To all of the Haights,
I know you all know how much your Mother meant to me. Spending time with her, or talking to her on the phone, was the highlight of my day. We could talk about anything, & we did. Remember I know things about you all from your Mom!!!!!! I loved her like she was my own mom. I will miss her so much, so R.I.P. Violet. I love you, BABE!
