Kelly, Jennifer and Bridget, we are so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. She was a good neighbor and even a better friend when you all lived on Harold Avenue. We know she is in a better place. Tom and Cheryl
Dear Fritz and family
I am so sorry for your loss. I am blessed to have known Nancy and the Woodmen family. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Nancy was a sharp witty lady. I was lucky enough to spend a couple dinner get togethers with her and the family. She was a pistol and made me laugh. Fritz, my heart hurts for you and Bridget and the entire family. I regret that I won’t make it to the wake tonight. My love and prayers to all the Peters and Cummings.
Fritz …..You have lost your soul mate but you have not lost the wonderful memories of the good times you shared. It has been a long time but I can still remember the great fun and sometimes crazy things we did at VI. There were some years when we lost contact, but I am very thankful that we were able to reconnect in the past few years and renew a great friendship. Hope you and your family will find comfort in the love and memories you share
