  • Kevin, my thoughts and prayers are going out to you and your siblings during this sad time. Thinking of you and if I can do anything for you,please let me know.

  • I just learned of my Aunt Dixie’s passing. I have fond memories of visiting Charles and Dixie as a child and playing with Mike (Kevin) and Chucky( Charlie) and Paula. Always loved the farm on the hill. Dixie was always happy and loving life as I recall. To my cousins I am so sorry to hear of her passing.
