Dear John, Kathy, Lucille, Rose Ann & Families,
I was sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. Your parents were one of the reasons I enjoyed my summers and week-ends at Bamber Lake. They treated me like family. Your Mom always called me a "brat" and then she would laugh. Even in the Christmas cards we exchanged, she would refer to me by that name. We could not have chosen any nicer neighbors. As Ray and his brother said, we all had the very best times together. It was truly one of the most special times in my life. Please express my deepest sympathy to the entire family.
With love & prayers,
Bobbie (DeMarco) Tracey

Mrs T was like a second,third or fourth mother to all the kids in Bamber back in the fun days. Mike and I always knew we could find a friendly face at her house. Hope things are OK with your family. Margaret and I send our sympathy. Ray "joe"

John, Kathy, and Family
I have many fond memories of the "Bamber Lake Crew". As a child I remember all the fun our families had together in much simpler times. Unfortunately, friendships like those are uncommon these days. Great memories, great times, great people.
