Margaret was a special person, a friend to everyone she came in contact with. She will be missed greatly by the way she touched the lives of my dad (John), Laurie and I. She will always be remembered in our hearts.

Millie was my neighbor and I will miss her dearly. I am sorry to say I have not visited with her much recently but when she was outside she would always holler over to me and offer a friendly waive. She used to open her blinds every morning by 6 o’clock; it was my way of knowing she was ok. Once, when she had not gotten her newspaper nor opened the blinds, I had gone to another neighbor to have them call the man who cut her lawn to come and check on her. She ended up being away for a few days. It really put a scare into me. I am certainly glad I had a chance to get to know her. She will be missed!
