  5. Kathy, Michael, Barry & families,
    We are so sorry for the loss of your mother & grandmother. A smile comes across my face when I think of her because my mother loved her so much & she loved her. The times they took trips at Christmas time to Hess’s with Mary & Jane and the times going to dinner. They were neighbors for years living across the street from one another but they were more than friends, they were family. I am sure they are together in heaven talking & laughing as they used to.

    Always treasure her memory & the good times with her.

    Love Eileen & Pete
