Dear Cousins,

We were so saddened to hear of Aunt Ivy's passing, We wish the whole family the deepest condolences and that you find comfort in the wonderful memories of your mother.

She was a true and unique person with a formidable awareness, intelligence and wit that I always held in the highest regard. Yet I will cherish memories of her wonderful kindness, generosity and the warm, welcoming hospitality she shared on our visits to the Garrison and Shalimar.

We wish you comfort, strength and peace and will keep Aunt Ivy in our hearts.

Love Brad, Shauna, Gabrielle, Myles
