Todd and Jen, so sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was a wonderful lady, had fun at the tin caps game with all of you. She is watching over you on heaven. Prayers and our sympathies.

Carole was a great neighbor of ours. She always had a friendly wave and smile to give. We would always exchange a few words when we walked by with our dogs and Carole was out working in her yard. Of course that included saying “hi” to Abbey, too! We’ll miss your friendship, Carole, however you are in a better place.
