Susan, Carol, Bonny and Diane, I have so many fond memories of your Mother when we lived on Bryan Place. She loved you girls and I was glad that I had the time babysitting all of you. I know she is with my Mom in heaven and they have so much to talk about because they always talked over the hedges in the back yard. It is hard to loose someone you love but you will always have your memories. No one can take them away from you. Unfortunately I cannot be there on Friday but I will be with you in spirit. Love you all,
Janet Roach Grossnickle.
