Sorry for your loss, Julie, Gregg and family. I remember your Mom always being so good to me as a kid, and she was so sweet to Christian every time she visited my mother's house before she got sick. Please know you're in my thoughts.

I am very sorry for your loss Julie. Your mother was a wonderful neighbor to my mother and helped her adjust to her new living arrangements. They were good friends and she was missed. Seeing her when I would visit was always a highlight in my day. She was kind, sweet, thoughtful, and a true lady with class and elegance. I was honored to have the opportunity to get to know her.

Have been thinking of Elaine lately. We miss her and Bud on Hazelwood Ave. Elaine always had a smile I love the memories of how she would put out all the lit bags for Halloween and then invite us in and take pictures of the kids. Of course the kids loved the big bag of candy she would give to them!

Elaine was a lovely caring lady. She dedicated countless hours to All Saints' Church as a parishioner and member of the altar guild. Elaine's presence has been missed these years.
