We lived across the street from Ms Blair- she was always so nice and friendly - my husband grew up with all the Blair boys---I am sure she will be greatly missed- Bless the family and know she is in a much better place !

Sorry to hear about Hilda and Gary. For many years I shared a pew with Hilda and Ralph at Marsh Memorial and we always had a good chat. She will surely be missed.
Thoughts and prayers,
