  1. Debbie and Steve. So very sorry for the loss of your dad. We were neighbors back in the 50’s. We lived on Washington St behind you. Your dad and I also shared the same birthday only 20 years apart. Our deepest condolences to you and family.

  2. Steve, Kathy and family,
    We are so sorry to hear of the death of your loved one. All of you are in our prayers and may God give you peace and comfort that only he can give at this very difficult time.

  3. Helen, Steve, Deb,
    So sorry to hear the news of Charlie’s passing. Growing up across the road from you in the 60’s was a much simpler and enjoyable time. I remember fondly all the times spent across the road on the “farm”
