  1. Dear Ray & Steve I will miss you Mom we had a lot of good times over the yrs! We took the cake decorating class together & both decided to do cakes later on.
    As time moved on we took each other out for our birthdays to keep in each touch & talk about our families!
    I can tell you more in person, when I see you later Steve & meet your wife.

    luv hugs & prayers!

    Linda & Jim

  2. I remember Nancy so well. We went through school together from kindergarten on. Her mom was our Brownie Scout leader. She was a great woman, and Nancy had her talents and energy. I’m so sorry to read of Nancy’s passing. My sympathies to her family.
