To All Of her family. This is from all of us at 11 S. Jones St., Carter Towers, Lock Haven, Pa. we all who knew her our condolences to all of her family. I always seen her bright side side, her joyfulness, her happiness, her smile, her kindness, her loving side. I am one of the ones who did not see her bad side. She was so sweet, and I am glad I got to know her for as long as I lived here with her, (I lived here 6 yrs.) and I always will miss her and I do think of her often. Her and I had one thing in common; our loves of our life, for her James and me my Jeff, whom I loved here on earth for 20 yrs. My Prayers are with you all who are left behind. I want to see her at that eastern gate when I go where she is now, with Jesus.
