Bonnie and Judy, I still have great memories of life as a young boy on North Main St., including the years as neighbors. Your family was a part of those good times and my mother always counted Barbara among her special friends. I know you will miss her but she will be in the House of the Lord forever.

Your mom (and dad) were two of my favorite people. They always treated me with such kindness when I would visit them with my parents. I remember their home on North Main Street and their camp. They always wanted me to spend the night at camp, but I was too shy. Our parents are all together again. My deepest sympathies on the loss of your beloved mom.
