Sorry for your loss. I was a neighbor and grew up near your childhood home. Barb & Ralph & all the Malones were very nice to me. I have fond memories of eating ice cream with them. Often, I was invited along to your family reunions at the fairgrounds. I sometimes babysat with you kids until my mom died and we moved to Chatham. I am sure you have some good memories of your mom and Judy and Mabel of their sister. God be with all of you.

Love your Big Sister Mabel.
