of our families knowing one another from the neighborhood.

My deepest sympathy to you, Dick, Angie, and Jason. What wonderful memories I have of first meeting Carol
and Angie when they came to church with Penny Biecher. And, who could forget all our gatherings in your basement with Carol's
famous ice tea, and cranberry bread; not to mention all our shopping sprees to the candle shops. She was a wonderful woman,
and you are in my thoughts and prayers.
So sorry to hear about your loss. My thoughts & prayers are with you all.
