Cherry – We are very sad to hear of your mother passing away. Just know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Becky, I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to attend either your Mom’s visitation or her funeral. I had unchangeable obligations at both times. It was my great pleasure and privilege to have known both your Mom and Dad. Your Dad was my sponsor into the Real Estate profession and I was lucky enough to spend many years as his VP on the Harris-Askins House board. It was also my privilege to escort your Mom to the last several H-A House Christmas parties where she enjoyed chatting with the residents. You are very fortunate to have had such wonderful role models to follow. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to chat with Nancy last week.
My sincere condolences in your loss.

We did not know Nancy well, but were neighbors, living at Meadowood Condos on Worthington Rd. She did a kindness for us several years ago and a friendship resulted. She will always be held in high regard by all Rotarians.

Becky, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I know Mom is heartsick to think her last sister is no longer a phone call away. Please know that my thoughts are with you. Bobbi
