Dear Geri Lynn, Curt and Bruce,
Before my Mom and Dad moved from Finneytown, I used to stop in and see your Mom. She ALWAYS greeted me with a big smile and a warm hug. Sadly, life gets too busy and I haven’t seen her in years but I will remember her as a very special lady! Thinking of you. . . Lori
