  4. Kelly Currie condolence:

    We were very sad to learn about our neighbor’s passing. She often told us how they played Bocce ball in our yard before our house was built. I’ll always remember the grapes she grew over her door for wine, her garden of tomatoes for sauce and the pear tree whose pears would fall into our yard that our dog Padme excitedly ate for years. Best of all, she’d bring our dogs and eventually kids ice cream cones when she saw them playing out in the yard.
