May was the best neighbor you could ever have. Her and John welcomed little Abby and I almost 12 yrs ago.. Always a smile and a wave for us as she was riding the little grandsons in the "Gator"..

May, you are safely home and all of your pain is over. You are now at peace forever and safely home in Heaven at last.. We love you, Pat and Little Abby

Anne & I will always remember your greetings when we made the loop while walking through the park. We enjoyed being your neighbor and are so appreciative that You, and Linda, befriended my sister, Margaret, and made her short stay in our community so enjoyable. Rest in peace our Friend.
