Mary and Clyde were dear friends and neighbors for years. Two kinder people you could never meet. Altho my age and health have prevented me from seeing Mary for a long time, she and Clyde have always been in my thoughts and prayers. I know the Bedilion family will miss her so much and so will I. God bless you all. Hilma Riggs and Family (Rogersville, PA)
