Kathleen, I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. She was a woman I always respected. She had class.

Heartfelt thoughts to you and your family at this time.

Kathleen, Mike, Mark, Steve & Eleanor, our thoughts and prayers are with you. As former neighbors (the School Street Clarks from First Baptist), we wish the Lord's peace and comfort on you all. I remember coming with Fred Chase to pray for your dad before he passed. Blessings in this time of grief.
