Dear Bev & Eddie,
Forgive me for not doing this sooner. It is what happens when something goes on the "backburner".
Will always remember Mom...Dad, too, because they were loyal members at St. John's, Littlestown.
Many of us have come to this season of our lives when loved ones pass on and rest in peace.
Comfort and peace to you in the time ahead.

Bev and families: Our sincere condolences to all the families in this most difficult time. We will cherish our memories of "Kas" and John at The Conewago Campground and in Crystal River, Florida. We always had good times together eating, laughing, and eating! Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Bev & families: So sorry to hear of the passing of "Kas" We have many fond memories of her & John (Amos) at the Conewago Campground. Around the camp fires telling jokes and having many, many picnics. She loved making crafts and her quilts were beautiful. She dearly loved her family and loved to talk about them. Every fall she would gather and crack the hickory nuts that fell. She was a very talented lady in many things, but most of all a very kind and compassionate person. Always had a smile for you. Our deepest sympathy to all in this most difficult time. May she rest in peace.
Linda & Don Nace

Bev and Ed, thoughts of condolence go to you and your family during this time of sadness. I remember your mom always had a smile on her face which she shared to every kid as they passed through the lunch line at Rolling Acres. God bless you. Class of 1965
