  3. Am so sorry to hear the loss of you Mom. I have great memories of Sandy when you all were young. Even a trip West Virginia with Grandpa Perly in his Edsel !!!

  4. So very sorry to the entire Philbrick family for the loss of their Mom and grandmother. I grew up knowing she was one of the cool mom's. Sandy was always nice to me and I was very respectful to her considering she had the Philbrick clan to deal with (LOL). Take care and cherish your wonderful memories.
