My deepest sympathies to you Frances and your family. I am your neighbor, Karen, across the drive. I only met FL a year ago when I moved in. He has been so good to me, taking the trash can up, watching the house, taking care of my sprinkler system etc. I only regret I didn't get over to really know you Frances. I felt safe when he was around, always knowing you were both there and looking out for me should I ever need someone close. Please know I am available to you Frances and will be there to watch out, help out or take care of anything there at your home you may ever need. Please never hesitate to call on this neighbor, as your husband taught me the true meaning of what being a good neighbor really is!!!!
Very sincerely, Karen Allen 713-277-4323
