To the LaConte/Villa families, I wanted to let you know how sorry I am for the loss of your mother and grandmother. I did not know her but I’m sure she was a wonderful woman. I work with Mike jr. for the city of Amsterdam and he has shared many childhood memories spent at his grandparents house. May God bless you all and remember all the great times shared with her.
