Gary so sorry to hear of Bernadine passing! I haven't seen you or any of your family in years. Since I moved to Florida In 1988 I've lost contact with a lot of family. The only time I hear Anything is if my son (Rick) notifies me. I hope everyone else is doing O.K. especially at this time. Robert E. Miller son of Richard W. Miller

Our condolences go to the family of Skip Rumbaugh. Only knew a few people called Skip, and she always had a smile on her face. I remember her as the Avon lady and from working at the local library, and from my years of employment at the local bank. One of our sons was good friends with son-in-law Kevin. May she rest in peace.
