We are so sorry for your loss. We will miss her so much. We always had good conversations. I know she missed her husband so much and the fairs they both loved to attend. She was such a kind hearted lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Lisa and Rick: I was saddened to see that your mother has died. She called me about a month ago, when the shutdown for the virus started. She was sitting in her car, eating lunch from McDonalds and watching trains go by. We talked for more than an hour. She just wanted to get out for a while, told me about your families and what she had been doing. She seemed happy, laughed a lot as we talked and told me she wished I was still her neighbor. It has been over 45 years since we left the neighborhood and stayed friends all these years but I hadn't seen her since your dad's funeral. You had good parents and I'm sure you have many happy memories. Fondly, Gertrude
