It is with sorrow that I heard the news of Mildred's passing Friday. This came as I traveled to Casper, WY with family to lay the remains of my mother Grace Osmon next to those of their brother George Osmon. It has been just more than a year since she passed. Sadly, the Osmon siblings and their families have experienced much loss in recent years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

I remember my brother and I walking to the store every Saturday with a dime each. I would by a Fudgecicle and Mrs. Price would wait patiently as I chose my three pieces of penny candy.

I remember the Price Grocery very well there on the Friendsville Rd. as a child living there on R. R.#3 in th 60's & 70's. It was always a treat to be able to go there by ourselves and have fond memories of both Mr. and Mrs. Price. My thoughts and prayers are with the Price family.

Marilyn and I were good friends in high school. My mother and I used to visit at their house as my mom and your mom were good friends as well. My deepest sympathy for you all and know that you are all in my prayers at this time.
