Carol, I was so sorry to read of your mother's passing. She was more than one of the residents, she was a friend. I enjoyed the times we would reminisce about the stores and businesses in downtown NP. Her memory was so good. She will be missed my so many. With deepest sympathy, Terry

Marge was a sweet lady. I was so fortunate to play with her in Dover's orchestra and with The Singing Violins. She and Bob were great people.

David just let me know this evening about your dear mother. What wonderful memories of the many times our families spent time together I’m picturing our parents together once again sitting around a card table playing a few hands. Much love your way ? Marva

Carol, so sorry to hear your mom's passing. She was such a caring soul. So many wonderful memories. Growing up as neighbors to your family was truly a blessing!

God Bless! Larry & Jan

Carol, We were so sorry to hear of your mom's passing. What an amazing, long life for such a sweet person. I'm sure there will be times when the loss of your parents and brother will loom large in your thoughts. Hold tight to your boys at those times, and enjoy those sweet grandchildren. Life is so short. Enjoy your retirement, travel when you can, and make happy new memories! So sorry we are so far away and cannot be there. Sending hugs and thinking you all! Love, Linda and Jeff
