Dear Kevin & family. We are so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. We remember visiting & sharing meals with your family while you were living on Middletown-Germantown Road, many years ago. What great memories of families getting together on Saturday or Sunday to spend the day. So sorry we weren't able to attend her service but we visit you Dad's grave often and now your Mom will be there too. Prayers for all during this time.
