    You said your Mom wanted to make it to 99 and she did. I’m so sorry Lynne and Rudy. May God be by your side during this difficult time.

    My sympathies for the passing of your mother. I so enjoyed running into both your mom and dad. They were a handsome couple and always so friendly and fun to talk with. I’m sure they are dancing together again.

    Lynn i am so sorry to hear of your mom. There are so many great memories with the Makie family on Cliffs Ave. Even my children loved going over to Audrey’s to get a cookie…..they knew where she kept them and she let them help themselves. Mom loved when she come visit and they shared recipes. Thank you for all the wonderful memories. Rest in peace sweet lady.

    Lynn and Rudy, I and Penny are so sad to hear of your mother passing! My second mother, how many stories we could tell about our moms. They are singing again, as they had so many times before! Thinking of you both!
