Mr Purdy .. Im just so very sorry for your loss. Just recently I stumbled upon some old photos from our days today when I was a youngster and then when my kids were young. You & Eileen were very much a part of our lives with lasting loving memories of our times together. Its been so many years since and I have always wanted to try and find you both. Im just so sad though that this time attempted Ive learned now that Mrs Purdy has passed. I hope she knew just how much I appreciated her friendship and her love towards me and my family. Im just so very sorry for your loss. We loved her very much! With Love & Friendship, Lisa Mariconda DAmico
