The Kremers family extend our love, thoughts and prayers to Marina, Cathy, Bill, Phillip and their families. Mrs. Barros was a wonderful and tiny woman with a big dimpled and beautiful smile. She made our Holidays extra special especially with her wonderful Halloween cookies. I loved going into her home with the lovely dining table and the piano. She had a green thumb as well. I have never seen a wisteria tree quite like the one in their side yard! I am sure she is smiling down on all of us from Heaven, bless her soul!
