I was a caretaker for Sara. She was a lovely lady and I enjoyed the time we spent together. My prayers
are with Sue at this time .
we were a young newly married couple who bought the house directly across the street from Mr. and Mrs. Harper. The house
and property needed some maintenance, and being newly married, money to do such was at a premium. Better neighbors we could
not have even begged for. The Harper's were not only very understanding, but kind,helpful, and encouraging. We will always
have fond memories and a spot in our heart for Mr. and Mrs. Harper. Our condolences to the entire family on the passing
of Mrs. Harper.
