Mrs. "J" , you never hesitated to tell me, or anyone else, exactly how you felt about things. I always admired your honesty. You always made me feel like a second son and welcome in your house, especially when I helped clean and paint your swimming pool in the spring with Kenny. God bless and rest in peace.

Ken & Kevin, Condolences to both of you on the loss of your Mother. I will always remember the friendship she shared with my parents. I will always remember the store and laundromat on Oberlin Ave. May she find peace being reunited with your Dad. Steve Yagielo, Greensboro, Ga.
