Linda, Sue, Vic and family: Such great memories we have of your folks as our good neighbor's on Mission Road for over 30 years. Always enjoyed all of your family when they came home to visit your folks and the visits "over the fence in the back yard". Enjoying all of the flowers your Mom planted and we must not forget the rhubarb. Many cakes and pies we made with that. May the many memories you and your brothers share of your folks help to comfort you in the days ahead. We sure thought a lot of your parents.
