I’m sorry to hear of your Mothers passing. It was always a fun time spent at her house on “the hill”. My sister Karen always asked me about your Mom and you girls when I got to wait on your Mom at Kinneys. It was such a joy to see her again and I’ll always smile when I think of your Mom. Take care and find comfort in the memories you made together.

Mildred & I were saddened to learn of Mary's passing. We wish to extend our condolences to all of her family. We were good friends of Mary & Jack and had many meetings with them, Jack & i worked together for over 30 years with the Gerber Co. Mary was a loving and dedicated wife and we treasured her friendship.

Mrs Hagar had it together. If you were at their house, she treated you like one of her own so you couldn't get away with anything! We, non-Hagars had fun trying to name the daughters in age order. Her passing is sad. I have the family in my prayers.
