  2. Debbie and Steve Barry :

    We had the great pleasure of living next door (beside the park on Woodridge) to your Mom for 10 years. We often enjoyed pleasant chats and her animated stories while she was out walking her dog, which she did without fail, every single day! She was always kind and warm. She was so very proud of her grandchildren. We wish you peace in this time of loss.
    Debbie & Steve
