So sorry to see your mother passed away. I see your dad Mark at the nursing home almost everyday when I go to see my mother Koreen Snow. Mark and my dad Ken have quite the conversations about Gayville way back when they were young! One night Mark came into mom's room while we were their and the 3 of them talked for 2 hours about Gayville history. It's amazing the names and stores they remember when 3 minds are put together. I finally had to break up the party at 8:15 and told them I had to take Dad home and do chores, but what a great conversation they were having. Sincerely, The Snow Family

Diane, we are so sorry to hear this. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We thought so much of your Mom and Dad. I remember they were always the first one at the bank for Social Security Day. I enjoyed it so much.
