Sharon, Mary, and Keith(Butch) (Batzer) Would like to say how sorry we are to hear about your mother.
To mom Avalena and Dick I can't imagine what it is like to lose your mom. I know it can only be painful. Mom I am glad you were able to get back to New York in time to be with her. She had a long and wonderful life. I have many happy memories of time I was able to spend with both grandma and grandpa on the farm.I wished I could have gotten up there to see her. You know she is at peace now. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers. much love Colleen
Marge, Lawrence and Family Our sympathy to you on the loss of your Mom (Grandmother). How fortunate that both your parents lived a long, happy life and were able to enjoy their children and grandchildren. My fondest memory of Alice is her beautiful smile. May you treasure the good times and happy memories. Betty and Tim Sykes
We are sorry that we won't be able to make it up there for the funeral. We are very happy though that we were able to see Grandma in June. Even though Rachel & Anna won't remember their Great Grandma, we have some nice memories and photos of them together. John & Nina Ryan
