So sorry to hear about Susie she was a good friend for many years. The Roche's and the Pratt's were friends for many years my Dad helped Mr. Roche get the paces of the house out of the train car and moved up to where the house was built. Wish we could be there I don't get around very good and Sandi has about all she can do to keep us going. God bless hope we all meet together down the road..
