  • To the immediate family: I am Forrest Simmons (Coshocton, Ohio) daughter, living in Mount Vernon. We both enjoyed visiting with Ken and Genevieve and looking at family pictures. May God be with her and her family in this time of need.

  • I was so sorry to hear about Aunt June. Sorry we didn’t keep in contact more, but it was hard to do that in Florida. Uncle Ken and Aunt June came down once to see myself and my sister Pat in Venice.
    So sorry to here of her passing.
