Nancy, my condolences to you and your family. Your Mom was always special to me. She was an excellent roller- skating teacher ( though I did fracture my coccyx - too much confidence! )

I had the privilege of knowing the carlisle's for most of my life. I grew up next door to them in orrington. I have such wonderful memories of Mr. & Mrs.C, as all of my siblings & myself called them. I will always remember them both with a smile, they were two of the kindest people I have ever met. God bless Nancy, Brian, & their whole family.

My condolences goes out to your family. Times such as these are tough. May you receive strength and encouragement from the “Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort” in your time of need. He also promise that one day we’ll be able to see our love ones again by means of a “resurrection”.
