Dear Sharon,
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you say good-bye to your mother on Friday.

Your cousin, Barbara Mains Wilson


Dear Sharon: I was sadden to hear of your mother's death. I talked to her after my mother, Ruth Taylor, passed in September. Your mother said she was doing well and still driving some. Anna and my mother were good school friends and I remember when we were children you would visit with us in Bendersville. The last years of their 1940 class reunions I would drive Mom to Sunnyside and our mothers would sit together and visit with each other, and call on holidays. We will miss our mothers, but now they can visit each other in heaven.

With Sympathy
 Diane Taylor Kuhn

I was saddened to hear of your mother's passing. I worked with her at Cumberland Valley District Office from 1972 until 1974. She was a sweet and kind lady...I was glad to have known her.
