Dear Bill and family,

I am so sorry for your loss. I just heard the sad news this morning. I remember the day we met was on a walk led by Brenda Monroe, to view the CFP properties. I had the pleasure of working with her, and you too Bill as a CFP volunteer. She volunteered so many hours in various capacities over the years. I can't picture her without her radiant smile! She was in my thoughts yesterday while I attended the CFP Easter egg hunt with my daughter and grandson. She spent many years helping the Easter bunny! I will remember her fondly.

In sympathy and friendship,
Jeannie O'Donnell-Northup

I knew Cass as a patient at Easton Pond Chiropractic. She really did light up the office and I always looked forward to chatting with her in the waiting room. She was always smiling and so friendly. She liked seeing my kids and was so proud of her grandkids. She really made you feel like you were her friend and she cared about everyone around her. I will really miss her.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
