Sis will always hold a special place in my heart, a dear friend despite the difference in our ages. I treasure our many conversations as co-workers at the Juniata Sentinel, where her memories were a treasured resource. Her passing leaves me with much regret about the time that I allowed to pass since visting with her last.

Dear Sandy,
I'm sorry that I didn't see your Mom's obituary in the paper before this week. I get The Times, but I was behind in reading it.

Your Mom and you were a very important part of my childhood. I thought that your Mom was just the greatest and most fun Mom around. I have so many memories of spending the weekend at Grandma's house, but spending the days and evenings with you and your Mom. Remember how she would let us ride in the back of the pickup truck!! Going to swim in the river at Mexico was always fun, too. I even enjoyed cleaning the horse stalls and then riding the horses. I remember making tree houses with some help from your Dad, and then your Mom left us take stuff out to the tree house. I think that we would take lunch out there, and your Mom was always willing to help us with whatever we wanted to do.

In more recent years, she always came when our family was in need, such as when Billie died. I remember her coming to the house and sharing our grief. She also came when my Mother died, and it meant so much that she cared after so many years had passed. I just wanted to let you know that I care about what you're going through now. There won't be a day that passes that you don't think of her or something that she would have said to you.

You and your Mom will always be in my heart.

Love, Jane Ann
