Take comfort that she is with Mark and in the spring her wish to go home to Maine can be fulfilled. Love to you and don't hesitate to call us whenever you feel like it.

Madge and I were friends from elementary school, and though many miles separated us after high school the friendship remained strong and when we managed to get together it was as if miles & time evaporated. Together with our other "best friend" Nancy & her husband Brian, Ed & I extend our deepest condolences to you, Bob. You've been a wonderful support to her and a great liason for us. We'll miss her. God's grace & strength be with you in the days ahead.

Bobby, So sorry to hear this. We moved to Port Clinton and no longer get Wooster news. Thinking of you, and hope you know I'm here if you need anything. If you'd like to get away and come to the lake, we've always got room for you.

Bob, So very sorry for your loss. You took good care of her. It's hard to believe that she's gone. We were friends for 50 years, and had enjoyable times, meeting for lunch, and showing each other our latest craft projects. She was always so creative and meticulous in whatever she was making. She loved Christmas, and I remember the basement being a year-round Christmas wonderland! She missed Mark so much, so we can be comforted that they are now together.
