Cindy and Family,
So sorry to hear about your Mom and Grandmother. We have many happy memories of family picnics, Christmas parties and gatherings at Turn Hall. She always had a smile for us. She will truly be missed.

Cindy, I was so saddened to hear of your Mom's passing. I always remember her with such fondness. She and your Dad were always so gracious and welcoming when I came to your home. It was so obvious how much they loved you. I'm so sorry for your loss. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Very sad to be reading this. Norma was a very sweet lady and one of the first neighbors to welcome us to the neighborhood in 1986. My condolences to Cindy and her grandchildren and also her family and friends. I’m sure you’ll all miss this sweet lady. Rest In Peace Norma.
Your neighbor from across the street Kathy
