Dear Nancy,
I am sorry to hear of your loss. I have so many wonderful memories of your mother when we all lived on Spring Road.  She was a wonderful, caring lady and I am sure that you are following in her footsteps.  Would love to see you in the near future.  It's been a VERY long time.  You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Mary Lou (Keim) McGinn

Nancy, Don & I will greatly miss your Mother. She was a very sweet lady and a great neighbor. I will really miss talking to her when she would be outside with her dog. You and your family have our sympathy. Our prayers are with you. If you need anything we are right next door.

Don & Helen Bender

We have delivered Meals on Wheels every Monday to Violet. We enjoyed our brief visits with her. She was always pleasant and friendly. She will be sorely missed.
Audrey & Jack Legler
