My Sisters Deb, and Nellie and I grew up down the road from you. Pat Snyder (our Mother) and Sylvia were good friends. Our hearts and prayers go to all of you. God bless all of you.

My dear Grandmother, God bless her soul. The journey through life has been a good one. There have been trials and tribulations, like most would experience, but no matter what came her way she kept a good outlook and was always up beat. I have many memories from my childhood that will always remain in my heart as long as I may live. The people you leave here will carry on your legacy and share stories with great grandchildren. Grandma Wolford; you will be missed, always and forever.
