Margaret LaPointeDerek, I had the pleasure of meeting your Mother when you were a teenager and best friend of my son Adam. During those years I came to love you as a son, and witnessed the genuine love of a Mother for her son and daughter! She was always wearing her love for you on her sleeve and expressed all her confidence in your dreams, and abilities to become the very fine man you are! She was and will always be proud to call you her son! There was no truer love of a Mother than Tracy's for you and her family.. My most heartfelt sadness is not an adequate term to express the enormity of your loss, I know...but you were dearly loved by your wonderful Mother May you meet again❤️
