This Obituary Has One Condolence

  1. So sorry to hear that she has passed , i always thought of her as a very cheerful and caring person. I did not get to see her much since my grandpa John calvert passed. As George would go fishing with him. She always made me feel so welcome when I was at family reunions. I have only read one of her books but would like to read more. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Leave Your Condolences
