  3. Traci, Kristin So sorry for your loss. She was such a lovely lady. A huge part of my life growing up. Her smile was something I recall fondly. She always made me feel a part of anything the older girls were doing. So sorry I didn’t get to a viewing. I know she will be missed. Sending love and hugs.

  4. So sorry to learn of the passing of Faye. She was such a sweet person. I would go to the grocery at Clarkson and we would stand and talk. She will be missed by all who knew her. Sorry Trek and family, always cherish her memory.
