Hi Scales family, this is Bruce Morgan and I just saw your Moms obituary and wanted to pass on our condolences. Your Mom and Dad were dear friends of my parents, not to mention me. Hope your all doing great. All of our love, Bruce & Andrea.

Dear Allison,
Going online to look up another obit and saw this. Your mother was such a kind person. She no doubt had that her whole life through. You were also very kind and your home on Neapolitan Lane West always felt warm. We moved to Syracuse Walk, then Appian Way and while all of us found our various friends and places to hang, your place in our young lives was always held close as a fond one. I hope your mothers passing finds you looking back with a smile in your heart. my Dad passed in April 2018 at 94 1/2. After attending Bob Langslet's celebration of life this past weekend, your families recent experience just drives it home how an era is passing. Thank you and your Mom for being a fondly remembered part of it. Take care and be well. In case you don't know, Sandi Maxon lives in her Mom's old home on Savona. Saw her at the last reunion. made me think of April Halston and her bud Robin, who Tim Brown and I got busted with sneaking out of the house with. lol. : ) I go to the Appian Way house most every day to collect mail and do some work. Kathy and I live in Los Altos with our kids and grandkids not too far away. We keep in touch with Nancy Terpstra, Julie Langslet, Janet Lawhead, Debbie Chipendale and Debbie Cardinale. As well, Wayne, Jeff, Tom.... If you ever feel like trading war stories of kids, etc., chime in. [email protected] I'll head you up whoever you feel like saying hi to. Take care and sincerest condolences on you families loss. Tim
