Randy and Robin : I would like to offer you and the rest of your family my sympathy. I have known your Mom since I was a child in Osgood and then
had the pleasure of being a neighbor when we moved to Hillcrest in Greensburg. She was always known as Alene the Avon lady. I will always remember
her fondly.

Mrs. Richey live across us for many years in Hillcrest. She was always kind and friendly. My memories of her are wonderful, because she always asked me how I was doing in school. It was always very important to her that were doing well in our "studies."
