I am so sorry for the loss of a great woman. She was a pistol and had a good sense of humor. We shared the same birthday ( I am younger ) We were both married to Ed's. We used to kid that we were twins separated at birth. May she be at peace.

Sorry to hear of Mrs. Reed's passing. From what I hear, she was a wonderful woman. She was certainly well respected at Castleton.

Audrey...such a great lady. We shared so much when you were here...up in the "blue cloud room"...our troubles and frustrations and joys and jokes and most of all, great laughs that brought tears and made out sides ache! You were a true and great friend. I know you are in a better place with no pain and no worries. Watch over us and send us a rainbow now and then. I plan to eat a plain bologna sandwich today...on white bread...with nothing else on it. Love you, Lyn
