Memories & Condolence

  1. Linda L Striker says:

    Dear Beth and family,
    My most sincere condolences to you all on the passing of your mother. Oh the memories I have of taking my children to your parents on Sundays to swim in their pool and then our cookouts. Baking Christmas chocolates with your mom every holiday season. My children learned to swim at your parents. Those memories I will always cherish and treasure. Hold onto your memories as those become priceless when we loose someone we have loved so much. Will keep all of you in my prayers.
