Dale and I have known Mary for many years. We have enjoyed visiting with her and having her as a neighbor to our apartment building in AuGres. We loved the way she enjoyed and cared for her backyard flowers. Her yard was always overflowing with the beautiful blooms. She was such a joy to be around. We'd like to send our sincere sympathies to her family.

The death of a loved one is the most devastating experiences a family can face. At times, the loss may seem unbearable. Please know that there are those who care about you and your family during this difficult time and more importantly Psalm 34:18 tells us that "God is near to those that are broken at heart. Jehovah is the God of all comfort. My prayers are with you and your family.

Judy, It has been many years since I saw your mom. I was in your father's English classes at Standish-Sterling in 1972-74. I still use "Fred" words! He remained in my life through my college years, answering letters, even giving advice about my boyfriends, "No, I don't think this is the one." I was very happy to visit him and your mom when I came home, and did make a visit or two with my husband, who I think Fred did approve of! I remember your mom always being so gracious and lovely. Our prayers are with you and thank you for sharing your parents with so many other kids who were blessed by having them in their lives.
