  6. Jane Grant Long-Burner says:

    Forrest, Jean and Lois,
    My deepest, deepest condolences for the passing of Marie … Mrs. Fry told me Sunday when I went to Easter service at Mt. Calvary that she was in the hospital … She was like another Mother to me … One of the last times I attended Mt. Calvary I sat on the same row as your Mother & she mentioned that she could not see me but knew I was there because she heard me singing … I was so touched by her kindness … Growing up I spent as much time at your home as I did at my own … Marie and I shared the same birthday and she was always quick to acknowledge that August 5th birthday each year … I know you will miss her, as will I …
    Jane

  7. Barbara (Campbell) Jenkins says:

    Lois and Jean, I do not know if you remember me from a long time ago, when we went to school together. I remember your Mom and Dad both, although I have not seen you or them for about 50+ years. I lost my Mom in 1995 and Dad in 2007. My sister, Rosemary, passed away on 2010. I know what it feels like to lose a parent. I still miss them all. I’m sorry for your loss and I wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  8. Patricia Dart Woody says:
