I am sorry for the loss of your mother.
My mother was a friend of your mother and her sister Peg Mackey.  As young girls they spent time together here in Carlisle. Your mother had a long life which provided you with many memories to cherish. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I was so sorry to hear of Anna's death.  She was a lovely woman.  She and Tom were like grandparents to me when I was growing up on Arch Street.  I have many fond memories of the both of them.  My sympathies go out to Kathi, Heidi and her grandchildren.  God bless.
