Messages & Condolences

From Todd McCluggage...

Great memories as Mrs. Pine hosted Richard and his teenage friends displaying an astonishing amount of patience (mainly for Richard) for many hours, furnishing copious amounts of popcorn, and white rice as we indulged ourselves in leisure, playing hearts, chess, and watching “Professional Wrestling”. She lived a long and fruitful life, as did my Mother.

From Sandy Praeger...

We are so sad to know that we don’t have my dad and your mother in our lives any more. Their friendship meant so much to them and to us.
