Mr. Hinerth, Brian, Sheri & Donna,

I was so sad to hear of Mrs. Hinerth's passing. I have many fond memories of her, and all of you, from our time as neighbors together on Graves Street. One couldn't ask for better neighbors.

One by one, the old guard passes into history, but they are not forgotten. My heart goes out to all of you.

Brian, Joanne, and the entire Hinerth family. I am so sorry to hear the news of Nancy's passing. It took me by surprise when I saw the obituary this morning. Nancy was such a wonderful person and I am so happy to have met her. I recall her many visits to Legion Bingo, plus all the family functions with you guys. I can't believe she is gone. She will be most certainly missed. With Love, Tom and Janine LaClair
