Dear Janette, Sharon and Robert, We send all of you our condolences on the passing of your mother. We became
friends with your mother thru our neighbors Joe and Crystal Poster. Your mom was always friendly and fun to be around. I
enjoyed going to yard sales with her. She got me started reading the Janet Evanovich novels. We will certainly miss her.
With sympathy, Barb and Jim DeGaetano, Carlisle, Pa
