Dear Barry and Gary,
It is hard to find neighbors as good as you all were. We were neighbors, when we were kids, when we lived at 2016 theater Drive.
Sorry for the loss of your Mom.

I am so sorry to hear of your mother's death. I always enjoyed talking to her when I was a pastor at St. James East. She was very proud of her sons, daughter-in-laws, and grandchildren. You honored your mother with your love for her, God, and others. She was blessed by her loving family.
