  2. Joann, Honey, John and Dick, So sorry for the passing of your mother. She was a true lady! I will always remember her beautiful smile and kindness she showed me as a teenager. Also her love for animals was so heartwarming. Even in death she was thinking of others by donating her body to SUNY research. I have the utmost respect for her making that decision. God Bless her soul. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. If there is anything I can do please do not hesitate to call me. Bonnie Ives Woodward
