Bud, Carol, Gen, and families,
I am sorry to hear of your mom's passing. Mary was such a lady; she was always smiling and had a kind word for everyone. I have fond memories of your mom during our "growing-up days" on the "Run". I often wonder how our moms did it back then; the cooking, baking, cleaning, raising four children, putting up with the neighbor kids, plus working outside the home ....and without the conveniences we have today!!! Amazing!!! Over the years I would run into your mom now and then at The Bon Ton; she was always the same ....smiling and radiating God's love. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you grieve your loss.
Linda (Smith) Alspaugh
