Our sympathy and prayers go out to Mr. Strine's family.He was a very caring and compassionate man that was willing to help people. We will miss seeing him on his John Deer keeping his lawn looking great and we will miss the neighborhood "history lessons" that he always had time to tell. We will keep Mr. Strine and his family in our prayers. Liz Stewart & Richard Pivovarnik
