Dear Robert, I was so surprised and saddened to hear of your mother's death. Our family has so many fond memories of you and your mother. She was so welcoming to us and, as you know, we enjoyed many, many days of swimming at your pool. I considered your Mom a dear friend. Please accept our family's sincere sympathy to you. I'd love to hear from you. Would you email me? Our address is redaupp5@yahoo.com. Love, Mrs. Aupperlee, Tim, Dan and David

Lydia, you were a tried and true friend for many years. I will cherish the years we worked together in the OR at Valley Hospital. The memories will last forever.
Your love of gardening was evidenced by all the beautiful flowers grown and cherished by your caring touch.
You made this world a much better place and you will be terribly missed.
May you rest in peace in God's hands.
Love,, Connie and Jim La Forgia
