Hey Bocker, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I know all too well how heartbreaking that is. You and your family were so very lucky to have had her with you for so long--the memories and stories will be endless! Take care and know that my thoughts are with you and your family.

Dear Bocker, Gary, Robert, Janice, & Caroline,
As you know, your mom was one of my mom's best friends. She was certainly the unofficial Dunmore Historian and could be counted on to "know all the details" of things going on in town.
She was among the last of the dwindling "Greatest Generation" and will be missed from coast-to-coast.
