Mrs. Schindler was a very quiet and caring person. When my family moved to the house we lived in many years I learned that Mrs.
Schindler made special cookies for every kid on our block at Halloween time.
I looked forward to her gift each year.

I always have felt blessed to have so many nice and kind neighbors. She and her husband always cared for others and this in my opinion is by far the finest attribute a person can have.
I am certainly proud to call them friend.
Blessing to you and family.
