Condolences

  1. Aunt Judy was such a kind, sweet, generous lady. She encouraged the love of sewing in my sisters and me. Every time I talked to her, she was full of joy, and never complained. She had a matter of fact way about her, especially about the many health problems she endured…she would say how it was, probably downplaying her pain, then push on and do what she could to help others. She was a jewel. She will be greatly missed. My condolences to Uncle Joe and their children.

  2. My condolences to Mr Neff and all the family. I am a recipient of Mrs.Neff handy work. We crossed paths at Crestview SNF and she will be dearly missed.
