Belinda and Bridgett Pretrey;
I is because of your memories and laughs that my mom lives on. He has told me countless stories of you girls growing up going to each others homes across the train tracks and playing. How when it was time for Aunt Cheryl to be born she, James and Janet had to go spend the day at your house and when it was over she went home to a brand new sister. Thank you for the smiles, tears and knowing she is still loved and remembered.

Growing up neighbors to Trisha & family is one of my earliest memories. Trisha was the long legged blonde teenager that took time & care with this little first grader on the bus. She always had a smile & a wonderful laugh. It is with great sadness that I heard of her passing. At this time I am visiting in SW Florida & won't be there in person. Her family are in my thoughts & prayers .

Patricia's family; I remember her from my childhood as a good neighbor. She always dressed so nice and I thought she was a beautiful teenager. Her parents and siblings played a big part in my growing up, so it is with fond memories that I must say 'adieu' to my lifelong friend. Even though I hadn't seen you in many years, the memories remain. God bless your family.
