Hi Susan and family,
I was sorry to hear about your mom. Ironically, I was in Germany at that time so I just read about it yesterday. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Ms. Aldridge. She and Mr Aldridge were wonderful people. We had several years of talking cross the fence on Cate Road.
We have missed them both. May God bless you all with his peace.
