Sending deepest condolences to Shirley, Tim, Rick and Randy. Although years ago, life took us away from a great neighborhood, we've never forgotten those we shared times with as neighbors for 7 years. Many wonderful memories. May God be with all of you during your time of grief. You're in our thoughts and prayers. Jim and Sharon Hess
