  1. Our memories of my sister are when we met with Lu an and Dean on vacations in many different areas between Pennsylvania and Florida usually around the second week in September. It was the Georgia mountains, North Carolina or the beaches in South Carolina. We have missed those vacations these last few years but it has never stopped us talking and laughing about those times together. Lu an, we love and will miss you and the enjoyment we had together.
    Love you,
    Bob and Mary

  2. Although I have not seen Mrs Brown since the late 1970’s, good memories last a life time!. She was a wonderful woman and treated me like family. I spent a Christmas in Mt Wolf with the family and she made it very memorable. Thank you for enriching my life. God Bless!!!!
