    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was such a nice lady. I have many nice memories of having her and your Dad as neighbors. As a child, I always knew if something happened they would be the helpers. May you find peace in the days ahead.

    Vickie, so sorry to read of Ms. Dottie’s passing. She was an excellent swim instructor for many, including myself. Mom and Dad thought the world of Dave and Dottie. Heartfelt condolences and prayers for you in the coming days.
