Fran, Nancy, Bill and all the family, I send my heartfelt condolences to you. Your mother was such a wonderful woman, so caring and always smiling, a dear friend of my mother and me in all those years we shared on Highland Avenue. Both your parents, along with Vernie and Bev were the life of the neighborhood. Always full of wonderful stories and laughter as they sat in the backyard on lawn chairs, keeping an eye on us kids running around making mischief. In the later years, my mother enjoyed having shared moments of chatting together about the grandchildren and their love of crafts. So many memories. It feels as if the founding fathers and mothers of old Highland Avenue are gone, but as Vicki has said, they are now all together, sitting on lawn chairs, laughing and reminiscing about those days gone by on the circle patio in heaven. Blessings to you all.

I am so sorry to hear of this. Bud and Virginia were so much a part of my families life. They were the best of friends to my parents, and like a second set of parents to me and my sisters and brother. They are together again... Vicki Plotz Stenstrom

I will miss Aunt Babe. She was my favorite. She was always so happy and cheerful that it made me happy to be around her. She was a dear lady.
