    "Kathy, Barbara and Bill: I am so very sorry for the loss of your Mom. I have so many great memories of her. The first Tim I water skied, she was pulling the boat and teaching me. The first time I said it was with her. And of course memories of the “bridge group” weekends are epic. I still have the beach towel she gave me when I graduated from high school—maize and blue with the M of course! She was a great friend to my Mom. I know you miss her. She was wonderful and well-loved. Please know I am thinking of you. Love, Cathy (Pombier) Bessant"
