I'm very sorry for your loss of both your parents within a short time of each other. I have great memories of the entire family having grown up across the street on Herbert Drive. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your parents were such good friends with my mother and father. May the wonderful memories of your mother comfort you at this difficult time.

Jack, and family: my condolences at the passing of your mother. You are all in my prayers. God Bless.

My family and I are very sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. Just three months ago you lost your dad and I know how much he meant to you. I also know how much your mom and dad meant to each other. They were inseparable in life and they are now inseparable in death. My sympathies to you and your family for your loss. Keep her memories alive by always sharing the wonderful times that you had with her while she was alive. Take care.

I enjoyed having Mrs. Lafferty for a teacher. She took kids out for lunch. She was a very strong woman, having survived breast cancer.

Mrs. Lafferty was my third grade teacher and I have very fond memories of her. A few being, The Box Car Children books, Around the World multiplication game and receiving a big Hershey bar if you won, and practicing cursive while writing out the words to The Star Spangled Banner, which I attribute knowing today because of this. I was saddened to read she passed away, may my thoughts be of some comfort to her family at this time.
