    I was so sorry to learn of my dear old neighbor and friend passing away! She was a wonderful lady and will be very much missed. I wish I could make it there, but I'm unable too at this time. I just
    want the family to know I care and I will have them in my thought at this time. I will keep them all in my prayers. Richard & Jean Van OORDT of Wisconsin.
