I'm Ardean's second cousin and I'm going to miss talking to her on the telephone. I know that she will, at last, be out of pain though. I know that you kids will miss your mom, but she's in good hands now. Sorry this is so late, I just found out.

Deanie and Mr. Jim were great neighbors and wonderful, giving people. I still have the blanket she crocheted for our oldest son, Daniel 22 years ago!! I'm so sorry to learn of her passing. I just know Mr. Jim, Deanie and Mark are together again~loving and enjoying each other.

Deb and family, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Your mother was a special lady. I spoke with her after Mark passed and corresponded through letters. You may not remember me, Nancy Laconca, I was a close friend of Mark's and met you a few times. I hope your good memories will get you through this difficult time. My email:
