You will be missed. I will always remember that smile. Also,
I always looked forward to my birthday call from my big sister in Carlisle, wishing me a Happy Birthday and inquiring about
how things were on my side of the mountain. I still have fond memories of the Kapp Christmas trip to the Quigley's home
on Pitt Street and walking to the Square and waiting for Santa Claus!!! I will cherish this event forever.
I love you!!
