I know Mr. Bill was waiting on the other side to welcome you. Thank you for being a great neighbor to the Drake family! I remember you always riding with my mom onto VA Beach and you would buy my brother an outfit for the school year. Your generosity with Little Debbie cakes and a kind word was always certain. Thank you and God Bless you.
I was very sad to hear about the death of Carolyn. She was a very special person to my family having become our “adopted” mother after my mother’s death. We have such good memories of time spent with Carolyn. We will truly miss her but are happy that she will be reunited with her husband and also that she and Adelene can catch up.
