Dear Carolyn and Nelson, Weyers Cave has lost a dear friend. As a child, I always enjoyed seeing your mother in the cafeteria as we got our lunch at Weyers Cave. She was always so friendly and had a way of making me feel special as I went through the line. I regret that I waited too long and never went to visit her in the last several years. May your memories and faith carry you through this time of sadness. Mary Jane Craig Pumphrey ( Manassas, VA)

I was saddened to hear of Norma Jean's passing. My mother was Anna Racer Miller, a sister to Kathryn, Norma Jean's mother. I have not seen our family in Virginia for years, but they have often been thought of and discussed with fond memories when those of us living in Pennsylvania gather together over the holidays. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. God bless you!
