Jean Dolphin, July 13,2017 Things that stand out in my mind of our nearly 60 years of friendship: Shopping trips; long telephone visits, "Fair" duty working the little train, playing bridge and always glad when I got JoAnn as a partner as she knew the game better than I, many high school proms with our teaching husbands, visiting tea rooms when our husbands were away fishing, eating "out" with friends and so many other things too numerous to mention. Needless to say I will miss her a lot!
Roger, I hold you in my heart and in my prayers. May you feel the presence of God surround you and bring you the best memories of you lives together. Pastor Corby
