Dear Gail and family - my deepest sympathies over the loss of your dear one...from one old Southport neighbor to another...I pray for your comfort and peace. May God be with you all.
Jim and family: We are sorry we will not be able to be at the funeral services. We are in Florida in our motorhome and not able to make it to Rochester.
We send our prayers for comfort, and know that Anna Mae is with her Good Shepherd.
