    My dear friend Traci, I am so sorry to hear of your sweet grandma’s passing. I am happy that she is now with your other family that has passed and I know they welcomed her with open arms. She was certainly one of the sweetest. I will always go by her house and remember her fondly. I am sorry that I cannot be at the services. My thoughts are with you. Love, Tracy Rose

    Twenty nine. Year neighbors, who would swap jobs- I would shovel your drive and Mr. CALLAHAN would put the new lock on my door. It wasn’t that I didn’t know how to replace a lock, I preferred doing the heavy work to fine motor.
    We always helped each other and that friendship saved us both money and backs.
    God bless and know God has added another angel and we will all miss her. Love and respect Diane , Debbie Shirar and Jerry Longfellow
