She was such a classy lady and always made me feel so special and important with the store.I'm sure you wilI and have missed her much. I loved your home on Plum St. I thought it was the prettiest house in Troy! whoever painted it white needs to repaint it that gorgeous green!!!!! I'll keep you all in my prayers. I'm sure she is bouncing around those clouds rearanging them and decorating as well as she did the store!! She will be missed. God Bless You All!!!

To Dave and Jackie, We are sorry for the lost of your mother.


Dear Dave, Oh for the days of yesteryear and "Big Herb" and Jeanette. They say don't look back, but at moments such as this, it is difficult not to smile at younger, more carefree times. As with just about everything, even our parents were built better. Warmest regards...
