  1. DEAR BARBARA-AS NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS, YOU AND YOUR PARENTS WERE WONDERFUL TO US! MY SYMPATHIES ARE WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY–PERHAPS SOMEDAY, WE WILL MEET AGAIN! MY DAD PASSED AWAY IN 2000 AT 90 AND MOM LIVES WITH US.

  2. Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. We lived next door to Mrs. Limmer on Cottage St. from 1969 to 1976. We have fond memories of her and Walter. I have a table that she discarded one time. It has now been passed down to my daughter. It is a beautiful solid oak table that I refinished a long time ago. Sincerely, Ron and Dolores in Maine.
