Dear Mark, Maureen and family,

I remember meeting your mother about thirty-six years ago. Shortly after, Mark and I became good friends. I remember how proud she was of all of your accomplishments as a young attorney. Our parents are so important in the formation of who we become. We would all like to pass on to our children the wonderful gifts she gave to you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you,

George and Maggie Hovarth
