Was sorry to read of your mother's passing. Been a long time since I have seen Anita but see you often Sandy voting. Been a long time since we all lived in Castle Creek, I now live in Maine. Wanted to leave a little message to let you know I was thinking about you and your families.

Anita, I spotted the obituary for your mother in the "Press" online.  99.  Wow! That's no small feat (pun intended!).

I didn't know your mom but it seems obvious from the photos posted that she was no stranger to a smile.  She clearly enjoyed her time with family.  How nice that you were able to get back home to spend the past few years with her!

Know that we are thinking of you and the family.
