Extremely sadden by the loss of a great lady. In my childhood she was like a second mom to me when I played and slept overnight with Linda, Cathy and Paula. She was a great cook. Will miss her presence at family events. One of the last of the great aunts and uncles of the Sohigian family. Prayers to my cousins and their families. Love you all very much. Know God is always there for comfort. Love from Jim and Maryann❤️🙏🏼

So very sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. It is such a difficult part of life to get through. May you find comfort in your treasured memories and support from those who love you. She was an amazing woman, strong and funny and most of all, she loved her girls beyond measure. I am helping my mother in law in Florida move to Cape Cod otherwise I would have been there. Blessings and much love, Betty
